What consultants say about our volunteering opportunities

How does it work?


Give Back Memphis recruits volunteer consultants on an ongoing basis.


The vetting process involves an interview with the prospective consultant and an application to learn more about their professional trajectory and interest in volunteering.

What's the commitment?

Each project

  • Consulting projects can range from two to six months.
  • On average a consultant can expect to spend 10-20 hours each month on a project.

Long-term commitments

  • Twice a year consultants meet to help improve Give Back Memphis’ processes and offerings and to share experiences.
  • We have found that consultants often establish a deep connection with their clients and continue to make themselves available.
