Coffee & Conversations are virtual conversations with MENTOR Memphis Grizzlies where they have open and honest dialogue with differing organizations in the Memphis and Mid-South community. These conversations are meant to highlight many aspects of mentoring and encourage others to #JoinTheMovement. For this episode, we will be teaming up with Kenyatta Morris - Mentor Program Director at Memphis Athletic Ministries. Grab a cup of coffee and join the conversation LIVE on our Facebook page.
The Memphis Grizzlies Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to harnessing the power and promise of sport to transform lives, through mentoring. The Foundation is focused on funding and creating youth mentoring and development programs that help students discover and meet their potential.
We began as the Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Fund in December 2001, when the Grizzlies granted $1 million to a fledgling youth sports ministry with merely 800 participants to build a state-of-the-art neighborhood center for youth in the Alcy-Ball neighborhood of Memphis.
The Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation was officially established in 2004, with the mission to assist at-risk Memphis youth through mentoring and education.
Currently, the Grizzlies Foundation aims to increase the number of youth with access to quality mentors invested in preparing them for success in college, career and life.
