City of Memphis announces virtual summer programs
Posted on 06/18/2020
The City of Memphis Office of Youth Services has recreated a new experience to keep youth engaged this summer with virtual programming. This will include: junior achievement programs “I AM INCLUDED” and the 8th Grade Apprentice Program; an entrepreneurship program for homeless SCS students called “It’s My Business”; the “Back on Track” program for Hope Academy students; “All My Children” which focuses on foster students; and a virtual app program for current students in the Memphis Ambassadors Program. 

“I want to reach out and support as many young Memphians as possible,” said Ike Griffith, special assistant to Mayor Jim Strickland and director of the Office of Youth Services. “Using this virtual platform allows me to include students who are not a part of the MAP or MPLOY Program.”

The MPLOY Youth Summer Experience and the Memphis Ambassadors Program are offering virtual summer programs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The MPLOY Summer Experience is partnering with Shelby County Schools to offer a virtual professional development program. MAP is following the same blueprint as MPLOY and both programs will teach students skills training, financial literacy, and have a special focus on COVID-19 education that includes precautionary measures and mental health awareness.
