The Grizzlies Team Mentor Program places three volunteer adult mentors with six students to form a TEAM; each TEAM functions as a micro-community with its own identity, culture, values, and voice.

This was my first year as a mentor and I was lucky enough to get placed with two of the most dedicated co-mentors in the program, Elliot Perry and Justin Brazil. Our students were 8th graders attending Grizzlies Prep, an all-boys charter school founded by the Memphis Grizzlies Foundation.
