Knowledge Quest began with the premise of youth development and evolved into an organization that builds stronger communities by “building” the people within the community.
Knowledge Quest, as an agency, was the product of a grassroots effort formed to meet community needs.
The 38126 and 38106 zip code areas make up some of the City of Memphis’ highest rates in poverty, school drop-out, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy, coupled with the gang activity and youth violence.
These realities all served to support the community’s decision to embrace the further development of Knowledge Quest.
