TigerLIFE and CHS Transition Academy Achieve Program

Join Forces at the Farm

Our friends at Memphis TigerLIFE began their Fall internship in September, working at the farm twice a week to help keep our facilities looking their very best. Not only are they dedicating their time to learning new job skills, they have also welcomed members of the Collierville High School Transition Academy Achieve Program to join them! With the help and guidance from our amazing volunteer, Donna, these groups work on various projects together, learning vocational skills while helping us fulfill our mission.

Thank you from all of us at Southern Reins!
