KNOXVILLE AREA URBAN LEAGUE

It’s Shoes for School Time!

Shoes for School is an annual back-to-school event that provides new shoes and school supplies for 1,100 area children. Each spring, we work with other non-profit agencies to help us identify and register children age 5-12 who most need the help. Purchasing shoes and school supplies for 1,100 children is a big undertaking, but seeing the delight on the kids’ faces and knowing that providing these basic necessities helps them feel more comfortable and confident with their peers makes it all worthwhile.

National Achievers All Year Long!

(NAS) was established to identify and motivate academically achieving minority high school students and increase the pool of students who are prepared, motivated and qualified for higher education. NAS is open to African-American youth and other youth of color in grades 10-12 with a 3.0 or higher cumulative grade point average. The video below gives a recap of a great year with the National Achievers Society!


The National Achievers Society accepts applications for membership in the spring of each year. Check with your high school guidance counselor about how you too can be a part of our NAS program!
