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.




"NEXUS is an amazing opportunity!  It allows you to build a meaningful relationship with your protégé and help their continued growth, give back to the community, hear insightful speakers, and network with others in the area you may have never met.  I went into this experience excited about being a mentor and playing a role in another’s development.  However, NEXUS has also provided me the opportunity to learn and grow as a leader."
