The Hope Center serves underprivileged youth in DeSoto County that may not have the same opportunities that others have. We focus on serving, encouraging, counseling, and just being a friend to those who need one.
We are pleased to be an official mentoring organization for Mentoring.org, the Memphis Grizzlies, and the Memphis Hustle. These groups are a base for mentors from all walks of life. Research has also shown that corporate engagement is crucial for closing the mentoring gap in America and preparing the next generation to enter the workforce.
Whether you are a part of a corporation or a single person, many of you have this gift of encouragement. Here's what our mentors do for our participants:
Create a structured relationship
Encourage, not coddle
Serve as solid role models
Demonstrate a positive attitude
Not afraid to offer constructive criticism
Value different opinions
