NEXUS:  A Proven Experience in Leadership

The need to encourage and equip the next generation of community leaders in Memphis is obvious to those who know our city best. To meet this demand, our young leaders need a place where they can learn proven leadership skills in a mutually challenging environment from top-flight coaches and mentors. Such a place is now available in Memphis. It is called NEXUS: A Proven Experience in Leadership.

Founded in 2003, NEXUS is a vehicle for the development and improvement of leadership skills, as well as a means for participants to make valuable connections with leaders in the Memphis community. Relationship is the key component of the NEXUS experience. NEXUS is unique in that it seeks to duplicate the experienced leader and develop the young, emerging leader through mentorship and relationship.




“One of the reasons I love Memphis so very much is because it is a city of

connectedness, a city filled with people who are eager to foster personal and

professional growth and development in others. My NEXUS experience has been

incredibly instrumental in my personal and professional growth and has enriched my

passion for Memphis. Words simply cannot accurately portray the dividends that you

will receive from being a NEXUS Mentor or Protégé.”
