Civic Collaboration Team Memphis

Civic Collaboration Team Memphis is working with Innovate Memphis, a nonprofit focused on delivering civic solutions through partnerships.

The scholars have been placed with the Transit Vision Project, an initiative that seeks to provide more frequent transit, decrease commute times, and improve public transportation within the city to reduce and prevent poverty.

The team has been collaborating with local politicians, community leaders, and other nonprofits to increase funding for and promote the cause of the project.
