Momentum Memphis is a collaborative effort launched by Stand for Children to unite the community for youth opportunity and success.

There are four platform areas that need our attention:

Graduation Success for College & Career

  • Ensure every high school student is on-track to graduate
  • Increase Career and Technical Education and post-secondary programs
  • Enhance early literacy education

Community Investment for All Youth

  • Increase summer job opportunities that prepare youth for life success
  • Support after-school and summer programs that improve student achievement
  • Support efforts that address poverty and trauma impacting youth and communities

Facilities and Funding Our Students Deserve

  • High quality school facilities to enhance learning for all our children
  • Advocate necessary and equitable funding to address student needs

Breaking the School to Prison Pipeline

  • School discipline reform that lowers suspensions, increases restorative
    and non-exclusionary practices, and puts in place proactive preventive measures
