History of Volunteer Memphis

Volunteer Memphis was founded originally in 1975 as The Volunteer Center of Memphis by the Junior League of Memphis & the National Council of Jewish Women. In 2000, we became Volunteer Memphis and then merged with HandsOn Memphis and then evolved into Volunteer Mid-South in 2009.

In 2015, we became an action initiative of Leadership Memphis, where our 40-year history and expertise in building capacity for volunteerism and creating changemakers in our community is aligned effectively with efforts to prepare and mobilize leaders to work together for the good of the whole community.
