Located in midtown, Memphis Youth Mission is situated in the heart of Memphis. Participants in our program will have an opportunity to understand the struggles of those living on the margins in the city that is known as the home of the Blues and the center of the Civil Rights Struggle. Youth will volunteer at a variety of agencies, and through their work and their presence will come to know more about issues of homelessness, poverty, food insecurity, and the unsupported.

Cancellation Policy Our ability to offer refunds depends on the refund policy of the organization we are working with and is often out of our control as we are sending money well in advance to hold our spots. If for some reason your family needs to cancel, we will do our best to refund as much of the trip cost as possible, but that usually depends on how close to the event the cancellation happens (i.e. the closer to the trip, the harder it is to get money returned).
