MTR Camp

This summer academic camp serves elementary students in MTR partner neighborhoods and was created to address systemic summer academic losses. The camp makes learning fun for students by combining math, reading, extracurriculars, field trips, and more. 

MTR hires approximately 22 college interns for 4 weeks to run this educational academic camp. Interns receive a living stipend, housing, meals, community, experience, and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of Memphis children.

STEM Discovery Camp and the Marjorie Lee Brown STEM Education Fellowship

MTR seeks underclassmen college students of color with an interest in STEM education to teach in Memphis for a 3 week summer camp.  

During camp, rising 7th graders join college students to discover STEM fields and to significantly grow their understanding in Mathematics (the foundation of a STEM career). The camp strives to launch students on a path where they can have access and success in a STEM career. 

Theory of Change

MTR desires to see Memphis’ most marginalized communities have access to the same quality of education within their neighborhood-zoned schools as any other child in Memphis. Find out how they do this via the theory of change here
