MENTOR Memphis Grizzlies (MMG) is the Tennessee State Affiliate of MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, and the unifying champion for expanding quality mentoring relationships in the United States. MMG serves as a clearinghouse for training, resources, awareness and advocacy, providing the critical link between MENTOR’s national efforts and local organizations and programs that foster and support quality mentoring relationships.
MMG envisions a community where every young person will have the supportive, caring adult relationships they need to grow and develop into thriving, productive and engaged adults. Our team works to fuel the quality and quantity of mentoring relationships in the Mid-South, and we are seeking partners to expand the support of volunteer mentors in Memphis.
TEAMmates was designed with the goal of strengthening relationships between mentors and mentees, retaining volunteers, and providing a network of support for mentors. We aim to offer many benefits and experiences including Grizzlies game tickets, passes to local attractions, social events and opportunities to meet with Memphis Grizzlies VIPs. Our vision is for each active mentor to receive a TEAMmates Membership Card that will allow them access to benefits offered by partner organizations across the city.
