Memphis Teacher Residency, a GSL grantee, is a faith based program that trains and nurtures urban educators for high need Shelby County Schools. MTR Camp has welcomed nearly 40 college interns to Memphis to work toward reducing summer learning loss for our community's children. More than 100 1st-3rd graders will participate in one of two MTR Camps for four weeks of math and reading curriculum, enrichment activities, and character building.
The GSL Outreach Committee and MTR invite all GSL parishioners to take a tour of MTR Camp. Interested persons should contact Hayley Moore at hayley [at] memphistr [dot] org.
Are you looking for ways to become more involved at GSL? Was your New Year’s resolution to learn about what is going on in the Memphis community? You are in luck! The Outreach Committee has many partner organizations who would love a parishioner to act as liaison. Outreach liaisons are parishioners who keep in contact with their organization over the course of a year. The major responsibility is establishing contact, keeping abreast of ongoing needs, and learning about volunteer opportunities where other parishioners or groups within GSL can become involved. This is an inspiring way to see the good works taking place in Memphis and how GSL is making a difference.
