Memphis Athletic Ministries

Memphis Athletic Ministries exists to grow, coach, and lead the youth of Memphis.

MAM serves to coach, grow, and lead the youth of Memphis by helping them identify their relationship with Christ and their place within the community. MAM provides Christ-centered mentoring programs for children, ages 8 to 18, in seven centers in economically challenged neighborhoods across the city.

Ways to get involved

Did you know that students who are mentored are 55% more likely to enroll in college?

Mentoring is extremely important and influential in a young person’s life. Volunteering with MAM can allow you to help a child realize their potential and activate their creative spirit. You can make a mark on a young Memphian’s journey

"My favorite part of being a coach at MAM is connecting and bonding with MAM kids. It has opened my eyes to see that every day you are making a difference in a kid's life in some little way."
