I Belong Project Video Shoot Needs

Tennessee Kids Belong

Our video shoots give children in foster care a face and a voice. The videos we make serve as individual recruitment tools for children who are legally-free for adoption and are waiting for their forever family.  Video shoot days are fun-filled and action packed, and we always welcome items to help make the day special for the kids!  Please take a look at the following link for a list of these needs.

Friday Lunch & Learn

4:13 Strong

Each Friday we invite a man from the community to join us for lunch and share their story. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, you have a story that is worth sharing. The 4:13 Strong guys are interested in hearing about how other men make money, what other men struggle with, and what they do for fun. We provide the lunch, so all you need to do is show up and share. Sign up here.

Friday Game Night

End your week with some fun and games. Friday nights are the time to play. There is no set agenda, just basketballs, board games and cards. Some of the best mentoring happens on the basketball court or while holding a handful of cards. Sign up here.
