Mayor Jim Strickland and the Memphis Office of Youth Services is asking the community to help provide jobs for youth this summer.

The office is launching a new program called JOY or ‘Just one Youth.'

Through the program, the Mayor is asking all churches and businesses in the city of Memphis to commit, employ and compensate one child of their choice this summer for six weeks starting June 5th through July 17th. Give just one child a life changing experience for the summer.  This “Call to Action” is named JOY, Just One Youth.  Together let’s bring JOY to a child while breaking the cycle of despair.
