Ashley Gaitan says, "Often times students aren't given the proper resources. We as Success Coaches do our part to give the students what they need."

Peer Power is proud to have Ms. Gaitan in the classroom with her students at Hamilton High School. However, there are still many schools who don't have access to this resource. By supporting Peer Power Foundation, YOU can push our initiative to expand our programming to other schools across Shelby County and together we can Reimagine 901.

Meet our #BlackManMonday spotlight, Whitehaven native, Justin Hart - an award-winning television producer and the creator of the Black Men Crowned Awards. Justin created Black Men Crowned to highlight positive things Black men are doing in our community to counter common misrepresentation often seen in the media.

Justin says, "Black Men Crowned gives us an opportunity to really provide a space for Black men to feel celebrated and for us to honor those that are actually doing extremely well in the city of Memphis."

Peer Power is a non-profit organization that recruits high-performing high school and college studen East High School graduate Charlie McVean founded the program in 2004.

A successful entrepreneur and dedicated philanthropist, Charlie had grown increasingly troubled by the poor performance of his hometown’s public schools and believed that the American free enterprise system held the remedy. Combining a performance-based compensation model with the powerful effects of peer groups, he launched his unique student-to-student tutoring method at East. The program was an immediate success and swiftly evolved into Peer Power.
