Become a volunteer today and join us in empowering the people of 38126. For more information about getting involved as a volunteer, email cchapple@advancememphis.org. Because we are a Christian, faith-based organization, we do request that volunteers interested in mentoring roles submit a statement of faith. However, there are many volunteer positions open to individuals of any religious heritage, and we are grateful for the support of volunteers of diverse faiths.

WORK LIFE CHAMPIONS

Champions provide assistance and mentoring to a small group of Work Life participants as they pursue employment. This is done through building relationships with participants while encouraging them to apply the principles of God’s Word to all areas of life: career, finances, and family. Champions meet on Wednesdays at 11am for 7 weeks.
Contact cchapple@advancememphis.org to find a class that fits your schedule.

Lunch Providers provide lunch throughout the week for participants going through various programs that Advance offers. Dinner Providers provide dinner for participants going through the Faith & Finances program. These volunteers are contributing more than just a meal–they are providing a time for fellowship and relationship-building that is vital to the work at Advance Memphis. 


LAUNCH MENTOR

LAUNCH Mentors provide assistance and mentoring to participants involved in the LAUNCH entrepreneurial program. Mentors participate in class along with these entrepreneurs, empowering and encouraging them as they receive expert advice and develop business plans.

HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY TUTORS

Volunteer tutors work closely with students to help them prepare for the GED/HiSET exam. Tutors are needed in all subject areas: grammar, writing, math, science and history. Most tutoring opportunities take place during normal work day hours. 

MOCK INTERVIEWERS

Mock Interviewers prepare a small group of Work Life participants for actual job interviews by advising them on basic interview tips and walking them through mock interviews. Each six-week Work Life class has one mock interview workshop, which lasts about 1.5 hours, as the participants are nearing graduation.
