Each year, mentoring programs leverage National Mentoring Month to recruit volunteer mentors through MENTOR’s Mentoring Connector, the only national database of quality mentoring programs that enables volunteers to search for local mentoring opportunities.
Since 2001, we have invested more than $40 million in three strategic focus areas related to youth development:
- Innovative K-12 education programming
- High-impact health and fitness initiatives
- Expanded platforms for youth mentoring
All as a means to help prepare every student in Memphis for success in college, career and life.
Habitat for Humanity
The Memphis Grizzlies teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to help build four homes.
The Grizzlies volunteer team painted, landscaped, and installed siding and hardware on four new homes in a community just blocks from FedExForum being revitalized. Those homes were sold to qualified home-buyers through Habitat’s affordable mortgage program.
