New Memphis Stride Program

Great teachers are critical to our city's future success.
New Memphis is fervent in our efforts to infuse our city with leaders who are passionate about positive community change and have the skills needed to take action. Stride is a free program that offers the support early career teachers need to thrive as educators in Memphis. In addition to social outings and fun opportunities to explore Memphis, Stride provides an environment of collaborative learning, peer networking, and professional development. By engaging teachers in their 1st, 2nd, or 3rd years in the classroom, Stride helps retain our community's most promising educators.
