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’s amazing Academic Coaches have an array of skills and interests. This spotlight highlights some of what they share with our TNT freshmen and our program. This month, we feature Zubin Patel, a third-year Academic Coach and senior Biology major at Loyola. Learn more about him and his science experiments at Hubbard! MORE
Target New Transitions is now able to award scholarships through its newly created Target New Transitions Foundation. High school seniors who faithfully attended TNT as freshmen can now apply for a TNT scholarship to help them make their next transition out of high school and into a post-secondary institution. Congratulations to Bionca Jimenez, the first recipient! LEARN MORE
Each year, TNT holds a retreat for coaches to focus on team building and positivity, where Academic Coaches and Site Coordinators worked together to tackle a high ropes course, multiple low ropes challenges, and literally scale a wall together! Take a look at pictures of the event and about the retreat here!
The school year is back, and so is TNT! This year, Target New Transitions is expanding into two new schools, Hubbard and Bogan High School, as well as returning to Curie Metropolitan High School. We can't wait to start September 24th!
