United Ways of Tennessee formally launches the Raise Your Hand Tennessee statewide collaborative effort to recruit tutors and mentors tomorrow. The launch will take place in the Old Supreme Court Chamber in Nashville, TN at 11:00 a.m. CST.
Raise Your Hand Tennessee will help schools and organizations obtain volunteers to tutor, mentor and read to Tennessee’s children to better help them succeed in school and in life. The effort is a comprehensive coalition of nonprofit, corporate and state agency partners working together to provide the infrastructure for recruiting volunteers, and placing them where they are needed across the state.
