Summer of Service


Volunteer Odyssey is bringing back our Summer of Service! Join your neighbors & coworkers, family & friends during these hot summer months to make an impact on Memphis. Summertime is the season that our local nonprofits need extra volunteer support to knock out both major projects and take care of their everyday, ongoing needs. Over the next 100 days, we'll be focusing on three crucial areas where your help is needed most:

  • June: 🌳Environment & Conservation

  • July: 🥪Hunger & Homelessness

  • August: 🎨Arts & Education  

Each month will feature a variety of volunteer opportunities with our amazing nonprofit partners. More will be added soon, but here's a sneak peek at some of the activities:
