Hi, I want to volunteer.

Our Committed Volunteers And Donors Are Changing Memphis

5 million+ meals provided to children since 2011

600+ children have enrolled in our Read2Lead program since 2015

83.3% of children in our programming have seen an increase in their reading scores and a decrease in school suspensions

More than 200 adults have graduated and received their high school diplomas through our Family Enrichment Program

Together, We’re Loving Memphis

When you make a donation or volunteer your time, your generosity turns into after-school programming for children, mentoring next-generation leaders, vital job training and placement and so much more.

How does it all happen? Simple. Through our friends and partners like you.

We realize how important it is to connect with a cause that makes a difference. Our team at the Memphis Dream Center is committed to partnering with you to change our community for the better.

We believe every family in Memphis deserves an equal opportunity to thrive.

Let’s work together to make that dream a reality.

Your Time, Effort, And Generosity Are Making A Tangible Difference

“I like coming to the Dream Center because the teachers are very nice. We do a lot of fun things! Art and gardening enrichment are my favorite!”
Ayden, Read2Lead Student

“I like the Dream Center because I get to learn more things about the Bible. I also get to try new things I’ve never done before!”
Jamaia, Read2Lead Student

“Read2Lead has impacted my life in so many ways – the kids I have served with have allowed me to expand my perspective of what is important in life, and what is not. They bring me so much joy and I have formed a bond with each student in my classroom. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of these students’ lives and to help them succeed!”

Jayme Grant, Read2Lead Volunteer

“When working with the MDC, I never know if I am going to use my physical gifts – distributing food, leading teams, or making a Christmas tree out of boxes – or my spiritual gifts like praying for others, loving on people, or encouraging someone. MDC has utilized this widow’s hands, given me a place to feel relevant, and be a part of kingdom business. Forever grateful!”

Darla Dunn, MDC Events Volunteer
