Target New Transitions

About Us

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. TNT offers incoming high school freshmen the academic, social and emotional support they need to matriculate successfully into high school and to realistically envision their future transition to college or productive workforce employment. Additionally, TNT offers highly qualified college students an opportunity to earn money as they share their time and talents with freshmen in large urban high schools. As a whole, TNT empowers both sets of students through homework support and the meaningful relationships that are created during Saturday morning study sessions over the course of an academic year.
