Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Memphis Rox Climbing + Community!
We are seeking volunteer help on a daily basis at our gym to support our community programs, as well as one-time opportunities. Additionally, we have partnerships with local nonprofits, allowing for coordinated special volunteer opportunities. As a token of appreciation, all participants in our volunteer program are eligible to earn monthly Memphis Rox memberships in exchange for 5 hours of their service. To enroll and start earning monthly benefits, interested individuals are required to complete the Memphis Rox Volunteer Program Registration form. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We're excited to partner with you.
Memphis Rox is a nonprofit pay-what- you-can-afford climbing gym located in South Memphis, Tennessee — a historically underserved community. We offer a variety of programs to help give back to the community we love being a part of so much.
In addition to 36,000 square feet of state of the art climbing, Rox provides hundreds of free meals each week through our juice bar. Our community garden supports the juice bar's efforts, teaching food education.
Our sundry store offers essential staples at little cost, and our after school program pairs youth with mentorship and tutoring — while exposing them to the transformative power of climbing.
Recently launched, our transitional housing program provides a stable environment to those who need it most. And each election day, our campus serves as a polling site.
Our pay-what-you-can-afford model ensured everyone who enters through our doors has equal access to the amenities we offer. We have a variety of events that we would love for you to take part in!
