UCAN of Memphis is an organization that mentors at-risk behavior students in middle and high school. We mentor boys and girls who have been affected by bullying, low self-esteem and behavior issues which causes low academic performances.
95% of our mentees attended college or trade school after graduation.
After attending the Blazers and Pearls program, survey indicated 98% of high school students stated they have increased their knowledge to be career ready.
According to school faculty, 85% of our middle school students infractions (behavior/bullying issues) have decreased and their academic achievements have increased while in the program. Each donation provides resources, training and additional capacity for the program. Help us help them.
Our mission is to strengthen young adolescents through mentoring, workforce readiness and bullying awareness which will bring forth positive growth in the community.
