Description


The Grizzlies TEAM Mentor Program is a very unique approach to mentoring. We are a school-based mentoring program, administered by the Memphis Grizzlies Foundation, that pairs 3 volunteer mentors with 6 scholars to form one TEAM. Scholars and mentors meet once a week for 90 minutes typically immediately following school dismissal. As a program in the Grizzlies Foundation, we are deeply committed to youth mentoring as a key strategy to achieve our shared goals for all students in Memphis: success in college and life.

Volunteering as a Grizzlies TEAM Mentor is a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of nine young people and to do it alongside other volunteer mentors in a supportive environment.
