Memphis Music Initiative: Part-Time H.R. Manager

The Memphis Music Initiative (MMI) promotes youth development through transformative music engagement, creating equitable opportunities for black and brown youth in Memphis.

We invest in two ways: through direct programs that connect youth to high-quality in-school, after-school and summertime opportunities, and by providing funding and resources to advance organizations working with young people.

MMI has three signature programs to execute our vision. MMI Works creates paid summer opportunities for youth to work at music and arts organizations and offers equitable access to career training and professional/personal development. In our Grantmaking and Capacity Building area, we invest to build strong and effective organizations through operational grant funding and supports that foster sustainability and improve program quality. We also offer our In-Schools music engagement program, which helps transform music classrooms into learning laboratories for personal development, growing student confidence and self-efficacy.
