TBF will resume its partnership with the City’s MPLOY summer youth program in 2022 after a two-year break due to COVID-19. “Campers and counselors will be assigned to us by MPLOY in the summer,” said Judith Moore, TBF president. “We will hold the Taking Back The Future camp that we offered in 2021, however, we are going back to an old process which was to serve as an MPLOY community partner and offer the camp to their youth.”
To take part in the camp, interested 14 – 22-year-olds must first complete the MPLOY hiring process. Younger MPLOY employees will be campers and older employees will train in advance of the camp to serve as counselors.
Moore says they look forward to bringing back last year’s knowledge partners including University of Tennessee Health Science Center, RISE Foundation, Paragon Bank and others.
The location for the 2022 camp will be announced early in the year.
