Behind the Citizens
Behind our great city are the people of Memphis striving to make change happen every day. That’s why we’re proud to announce Behind the Citizens, an online series highlighting the change-makers and world-shakers ushering in a New Century of Soul.
Next Century Memphians
We stand at the edge of a new century, taking a moment to celebrate our artists and innovators. A new generation is taking its turn, hungry to create change in Memphis yet again. Learn more about our Next Century Memphians below!
New Century of Soul Challenge
The New Century of Soul Challenge is driven by community. It’s your chance to create projects of lasting impact in your neighborhoods–it could be new park benches or a community garden.
Year to Volunteer
Want to be part of a year-long initiative to mobilize volunteers in the country’s most generous city? Learn more about Volunteer Odyssey and the Year to Volunteer bicentennial challenge.
Our Bicentennial is more than a birthday celebration, it’s a chance to challenge our community to create change. Partnering with IOBY (In Our Back Yard), the City of Memphis and Shelby County have issued a Community Challenge to fund projects of lasting impact across our community.
The best way to make a difference is to get involved.
