Application Process

The NEXUS Class of 2018 is currently taking place. NEXUS will begin recruitment for mentors and protégés for the Class of 2019 in the spring. We will host an informational recruitment reception to provide more information to those interest in participating and applications will be online in the spring.

We will continue to search for experienced, proven leaders to duplicate and young, emerging leaders to develop through mentor-ship, relationship and interactive teaching.
NEXUS Mentors are experienced leaders within their profession or/and community and whose character, commitment, and competence we would like to see “duplicated” in Memphis.
NEXUS Protégés are the next generation of leaders; young, emerging leaders looking to develop professional and/or personally and want to make a difference in Memphis.

Contact NEXUS at or 901.531-6171 if you have any questions.
