"What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured."

-Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.


 PRYSM is a safe, fun space for 13-17 year olds to meet friends and get support. If your school doesn't have a GSA, rainbow, or queer  group (or even if it does) join us on Thursday nights and get to know other teens like you. There is a fun program every week, good  grub, and a group of young people ready to welcome you. PRYSM meets EVERY SATURDAY from 4:00 - 6:00pm. If you are a parent or  a teen and you want more info about PRYSM, call us at (901) 278-6422 or email sreyes@mglcc.org.


A safe place for 18-25 year olds to meet friends in their community. Looking for something to do on Friday nights that isn't a bar or club? A "college budget" meal is cooked every friday night. Come hang out, bring your friends (and your appetite), and meet new people in your community. Free food and adventure! :) Gen Q meets every Friday night from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. Check out our Facebook page here.
