Leadership Memphis’s mission is to prepare and mobilize leaders to work together for the good of the whole community. The FastTrack Program is designed for emerging leaders with high potential who are eager to make a difference in the Greater Memphis Area. Over a twelve-week period, participants are introduced to challenging concepts, game-changing tools, and a network of opportunities to create positive change, personally and in the community.
FastTrack builds on participants’ existing leadership skills and expands their knowledge of community programs, policies, and existing change-makers. Participants gain a stronger understanding of how to increase their impact in various sectors via experiential learning and exposure to high-profile community leaders.

What Participants Say
Leadership Memphis FastTrack has taught me that I can make a difference. It has taught me that ignorance is not bliss and the more you know, the better person you will be. It has taught me that it is easy to sit around and complain about the problems; however, it is totally different to figure out solutions and make them happen. It has taught me that we are a very diverse community and that learning more about that diversity only brings us all closer. Leadership Memphis FastTrack has made me a better person, a more well-rounded person.
