Memphis is known as a city of innovation in business, music, human rights and expression, medicine, and so much more. Elvis, FedEx, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Robert Church, the Sanitation Workers Strike, Beale Street, the Yellow Fever epidemic, Boss Crump, and many more have created the complicated city we love.
People travel from all over the globe to Memphis to consume culture, barbecue, music, and history. While there are many ways this city is great, we know there is work to do to ensure that there is justice for all citizens. There are many hard-working organizations fighting for equity.
Our mission is to partner college student volunteers with service organizations to facilitate interpersonal development and a renewed perspective of civic advocacy, interdependence, and respect for diversity through service-learning trips.
Our vision is that, through Serve901, Memphis is strengthened and those we host learn to love Memphis and justice catalyzing them to live towards a greater good.
