City of Memphis Office of Youth Services and Community Affairs has revised its summer youth employment services to now encompass a year-round enrichment program. The Memphis Ambassadors program will target 560 youth in grades 10-12 and will integrate community, business, and neighborhood alliances centered on four core values:

  • Education
  • Health
  • Civic and Social Responsibility
  • Employability

Housed in 14 sites covering seven City Council districts, the program will be launched in two initial phases, beginning in June 2010 and January 2011. Each site will be supported by a community cluster that will include faith-based institutions, businesses, schools, neighborhood organizations, non-profits, government agencies, parents, and volunteers.

Online application for the first phase of Memphis Ambassadors program will be available on April 15. Application deadline is April 30. Announcement of the list of program participants will be May 15.
