New website aims to improve life in Memphis

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis is making it easy for young people to take advantage of ways to improve their lives.

The City of Memphis launched a new website, OpportunityMemphis.com, designed to connect Memphians with opportunity.

The website is divided into eight different sections, to easily get help with what you need.
