TEAM Mentor Program

The TEAM Mentor Program is part of a network of programs funded by the Memphis Grizzlies Foundation to leverage the mentor relationship to better prepare students for success. A unique and innovative model, TEAM Mentor places three volunteer adult mentors with six students to form a TEAM; each TEAM functions as a micro-community with its own identity, culture, values and voice. 

Using curriculum developed in partnership with Facing History and Ourselves, the program is designed to help young people 1) make sense of their social context and how they fit into it, 2) create sustained relationships with adults who can provide them with knowledge, motivation and networks to succeed, and 3) act collaboratively with others to promote a better future for themselves and their communities.

Students must be enrolled in a partner school or center to participate.
