We have started a new venture with the new Memphis Sports & Events Center in Liberty Park (formerly the Fairgrounds). We are the first NPO (nonprofit organization) to be offered an agreement to have our students and staff volunteer at the consession & resturant area in exchange for a donation to our organization.
We have and opportnity to make upwards $30,000 this year in contribtuions to our organization while providing real-time, real-life work skills and training for our youth members. Students are learning how to cook, cash handling, customer service, inventory, food prep, sanatation, and more. Students earn discounts and money off of thier upcoming uniform and trip costs for working in the program. Some have been offered real jobs with the company.
