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.

Testimonials

“As a new Memphian and young professional, I gained significant value from Nexus in that it introduced me to a mentor who has understood my ultimate goal of being a leader since day one and who has selflessly invested tremendous effort and time in working with me to help me achieve that goal.  I gained additional value from the fact that the program has attracted extraordinary, highly influential individuals, who are examples of leadership in this community, to speak to the group and share how their experiences and philosophies have led to impactful careers and lives.  And through connecting us with opportunities to participate in community service projects, Nexus facilitated what I hope will be a lifelong habit of rolling up my sleeves and giving back to Memphis.”
