My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for UCAN, Memphis, TN, USA
UCAN of Memphis is one of the best nonprofits in the city. They are visible in the community and work diligently to improve the lives of the youth and young adults in Memphis. Under the leadership of Executive Director Leshundra Robinson, UCAN has become a signature organization in the community. It takes a compassionate leader to consistently go into the community and touch lives. This is what UCAN is; it not only touches lives as it relates to bullying and workforce development they touch lives far beyond that. UCAN is led by a visionary leader who uses her life as an example of what perseverance and faith can accomplish. This organization is like no other within the City of Memphis, most organizations will lead by name. UCAN leads with the heart; they live the mission and the vision of developing people from the inside out.
I am reminded of a quote by Robin S. Sharma as it relates to UCAN of Memphis “Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It's about impact, influence, and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.” Ms. Robinson and UCAN have made a great impact on the City, through loving and living what they do. From the City of Memphis and the Memphis Ambassadors Program, we thank you for work, dedication, and faithful service to the youth of Memphis.
