Featured Partner

We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with Meharry Medical College to meet a critical need for more Black mentors in our community. In 2020, Meharry Medical College, the first medical school for Black students in the South, received a historic $34 million gift from Bloomberg Philanthropies for student scholarships aimed to improve minority health nationwide and increase numbers of Black doctors by reducing their debt burden, and in turn, scholarship recipients will complete community service requirements. Dr. Dontal Johnson, a two-time Big Brother with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee and leader of the 280 Bloomberg Scholars at Meharry, recognized the opportunity to make mentoring with BBBSMT the preferred service work for students to help meet the need for more Black mentors. To date, 139 Meharry medical students have followed in Dr. Johnson’s footsteps to become Bigs in our programs, and 97 are looking to inspire others interested in health careers through our online college and career readiness program, E-Mentoring.
