ATLprojects participants learn that having an education is a good thing and can be a vehicle for far-reaching success. The overarching goal of ATLprojects is to help young men and women of South Atlanta feel proud about themselves, their families, and their communities. Our programming has three components: Academic Rigor and Success, Leadership Skill Development, and Exposure to the world that is waiting for them to make a difference.
ATLprojects exposes teens to life outside of the immediate reach of their neighborhoods, yet promotes extraordinary pride in their communities. We encourage students to develop strong, positive and healthy functioning identities through experiences that spark the imagination and foster ingenuity.
