Target New Transitions (TNT), is a high school freshmen intervention focused on reducing the nation’s drop out statistics while simultaneously providing meaningful community-based employment for highly qualified college students.
Target New Transitions awards scholarships through the Target New Transitions Foundation. High school seniors who faithfully attended TNT as freshmen can apply for a TNT scholarship to help them make their next transition out of high school and into a post-secondary institution. Bionca Jimenez, a Kelly High School alumna and TNT’s first scholarship recipient attended a TNT study session at Kelly to encourage freshmen to take advantage of the program’s yearlong resources.
