Here are the ways you, a small group, or an 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

Academics Volunteer

Once a month or up to five days a week. Build relationships with our students through homework help, brain breaks, and/or reading or math games and activities. This opportunity is available Monday-Friday 9:00 am – 4:30 pm and is offered at various locations across the city.

Skill Sharing

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 craftsmanship, cooking, knitting, sewing, makeup, fashion, woodworking or art to help us better serve kids across Memphis.


Serve as a mentor through MAM’s Amplify Mentor Program (AMP). High school students apply for this program which combines mentoring, life skills, and work experience to develop employable, prepared individuals. Mentors must agree to serve an entire school year and meet with student a minimum of two hours a month.

Lend a hand, together

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