Leadership Memphis develops community change agents, connects them with others who have a passion to serve, and empowers them with information and opportunities to make a difference. The organization has four programs -- Executive, Criminal/Juvenile Justice, FastTrack, and Grassroots -- that develops community leaders at every level from seasoned professionals and emerging talent to front-line leaders. Leadership Memphis hosts four signature events annually designed to create stronger connections between our alumni, sponsors, community partners and other business and community leaders in support of our vision, mission and goals. Our action initiatives are Memphis Talent Dividend, Graduate Memphis, Imagine Memphis, and SUCCESS High Schools. These initiatives are undertaken to help enhance our city economically and socially by increasing the number of adults who have college degrees and to ensure that high school graduates further their education and training beyond high school.
