Programs don’t change lives. God changes lives through relationships. Our staff alone can’t develop relationships with every participant and graduate–we need your help. And we need your help providing jobs for our program graduates. To get involved with Advance Memphis click the links below.
How Our Programs Work
By building programs rooted in relationships, we seek to give participants a glimpse of how the Father sees them: as unique individuals with gifts and talents that empower them to work, learn, grow, and serve. Volunteers are essential to many of these “stepping stone” programs:
Work Life provides soft skills job training.
Faith & Finances provides economic literacy and personal finance training.
Individual Development Accounts allow participants to earn matching dollars to purchase an economically stabilizing asset.
HSE/GED classes and tutoring prepare participants for the HiSET or GED.
Job placement services help participants transition to work, often through the Advance Memphis Staffing Program.
Wraparound services are provided such as Overcoming through Christ (an addiction recovery meeting), counseling, Anger Management class, and more.
Advance Memphis serves the Cleaborn & Foote communities of Memphis by empowering residents to acquire knowledge, resources, and skills to be economically self-sufficient through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
