Our History

UCAN of Memphis (You Can Achieve Now) Co-Founder and Executive Director, Leshundra Robinson, made it her mission to return to her former neighborhood in North Memphis to make a difference. She decided the best way to leave a larger imprint would be to form an organization dedicated to serving youth where she grew up. In 2016, we reached 1,123 students. Check out our video.
