TAG Academy Relief MSM
The MSM-Tuskegee Airmen Global Academy Connect Mentoring Program is a partnership with the Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM), Tuskegee Airmen Global (TAG) Academy, Atlanta Public Schools, and Atlanta CARES. Many members of the MSM community provide one-on-one and group mentoring to TAG students in grades three through five. Research indicates that mentoring improves attendance, academic achievement, classroom behaviors, life skills and self-efficacy.
Before the pandemic, many students at the Tuskegee Airmen Global Academy faced homelessness and food insecurity. They depended on going to school to have a steady, healthy meal and a stable place to learn. Emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic pull stability into a tailspin.
Though the pandemic has paused our face-to-face outreach with our pipeline students, we can help our TAG students and their families by ensuring they have much needed supplies and food in these particularly challenging times.
