Enrichment & Access
The Rogers Scholars is an application-based organization of juniors and seniors, selected based on their interest in learning more about the policy issues in Memphis, as well as their leadership capacity. With an emphasis on experiential learning focusing on Memphis issues, history, and culture, this program empowers the girls to consider, reflect, and discuss options, solutions, and action plans relating to topics such as food insecurity, healthcare, education reform, poverty, and social justice. Throughout the year, the Rogers Scholars cohort meets with leadership teams from local nonprofit organizations, as well as community leaders and involved citizens, to better understand complex issues that girls can then confront with confidence and compassion.
