Volunteer

Here are the ways you, a small group, or organization can serve our MAM youth.

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” – Galatians 5:13-14

FLEXIBLE COMMITMENT

Homework Helper

Once a month up to four days a week. Take part in homework help by assisting our youth with their studies after school. This opportunity is offered Monday – Thursday ranging from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. during the school year. We have homework help at various locations across the city.

Reading Helper

Once a month up to four days a week. Take part in reading help by reading to our youth in conjunction with our partnership with Literacy Mid-South. This opportunity is offered Monday – Thursday from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. during the school year and at various times during the summer. We have reading help at various locations across the city.

Career Readiness Helper

Once a month or weekly on Wednesday nights. Take part in our career readiness program by helping our staff teach workplace soft skills and discuss workplace issues with our youth.

SCHEDULED COMMITMENT

Coach or Assistant Coach

Scheduled weekly practices and games. We offer year-round opportunities to serve as a coach or assistant coach for multiple sports. Prior knowledge of the sport is desired but not required. Come alongside our staff and build into the lives of our kids by volunteering with basketball, soccer, flag football, or volleyball.

Skill Sharing

As a one time commitment, take part in sharing your life with MAM by working with our staff  or youth to use your God-given skills and talents for the benefit of MAM. For example, use your knowledge of computers, marketing, finance, or human resources to help us better serve kids across Memphis.

Experience Building

As a one time commitment, help us give our kids new and exciting experiences. Enjoy camping? Have experience canoeing? Have a lake house? Take some time with our staff and kids to create lifelong memories and experiences that will enhance our proclamation of the gospel.

GROUP OPPORTUNITIES

Lend a hand, together

We welcome and encourage all groups to volunteer with us – university clubs and organizations, churches and corporations. Volunteers can join or spearhead a clean-up at the golf course or at one of our eight other locations, co-teach devotionals, host a cookout, teach Vacation Bible school or build intentional relationships with the youth after school. Volunteers can also share a special skill or talent with the youth such as personal financial lessons, computer maintenance, lawn care, healthy eating choices, etc.

Adopt a Team

A small group or business can adopt one of our 60+ teams in our leagues. Your group would be responsible for cheering and encouraging the team as they play in our leagues.  Come to the games, bring a snack and enjoy some sports. Our hope is that you would build relationships with these students and get to build solid life long relationships with a child.
