MAM’s mission is to help build godly youth in under-resourced neighborhoods by teaching them to love God, love others and love themselves. Our vision is to develop youth into Christ-centered, productive adults, positively impacting their families and neighborhoods.
Memphis Athletic Ministries serves approximately 800 youth daily (Monday through Saturday), ages 8 to 18, through eight neighborhood centers located in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Our year-round holistic mentoring and discipleship programs — academics, career readiness, Bible studies, sports/ recreation ¬- address the physical, educational, social, emotional and spiritual needs of our urban youth.
All of our programs are designed to enable our youth to have the knowledge and skills to make sound decisions and become responsible, productive adults. Specifically our academic and career readiness programs work together to address issues such as poor academic performance, high dropout rates, low graduation rates, a lack of financial management skills, poor job skills and chronic unemployment. At MAM, our served youth benefit from consistent, caring mentoring that models the relationship of a parent to a child. Our mentoring staff members are positive role models who diligently work to build one-on-one relationships, helping our youth develop confidence in their abilities and believe in a successful future.
MAM is guided by 5 core values — Christ-centered, relational ministry; urban youth focus; loving/safe/fun environment; holistic development programming; and godly community influence.”
