The Launch 

mission

Launch is a free New Memphis program that connects college students with the networks and professional opportunities that will inspire them to launch meaningful careers in Memphis. Through Launch, we introduce college students to the dynamic community of local employers while helping students learn to navigate the workplace, build networks, develop professional skills, and plot their career. 

 

How We Do It:

CONNECT STUDENTS TO MEMPHIS EMPLOYERS

By hosting regular professional development and networking opportunities in partnership with local employers, we are helping to bridge the gap between students and the business community.

IMPROVE ACCESS TO LOCAL INTERNSHIPS AND YOUNG TALENT

Launch offers support to employers as they recruit diverse intern talent while students search for local, open opportunities that match their skills and interests. 

BUILD PROFESSIONAL SKILLS FOR STUDENTS

Through Accelerate, we connect students to resources and events that help them build the professionals skills necessary for success in an internship and success in the workforce upon graduation.

SUPPORT EMPLOYERS AS THEY HOST INTERNS

New Memphis provides resources and tools for local employers as they create new internship programs or grow existing internship programs to host more local students.

* Launch is a program of New Memphis, a nonprofit with a mission to forge a more prosperous and vital new Memphis by developing, activating and retaining talent.
