Memphis Ambassadors Program (MAP): Program Overview
MAP is a year-round development program for youth participants in grades 9-12 that offers engagement with career-readiness and college-preparation skills. The program’s curriculum is based on four core values: Education, Health, Employability, and Civic and Social Responsibility. Ambassadors meet every week to receive support in their transition from high school to post-secondary options, and participate in life skill exercises, such as resume writing, ACT practice sessions, financial literacy workshops, and fitness training. Each summer, Senior Ambassadors receive full-time internships with the City of Memphis in Park Services, Engineering, Libraries, the City Attorney’s Office and more. During enrichment camp for freshmen, sophomore and junior ambassadors, students will: build employment skills, gain cultural exposure, learn about health and wellness, and participate in team-building activities.
