Artportunity Knocks
School of the Arts

ARTportunity Knocks is a non-profit organization catering to the education and development of youth in the areas of STEM Education and the Arts. Through our After-school and Summer Camp programs, we offer non-traditional enrichment learning (including robotics, culinary arts, music engineering, etc.) to students as young as K-12--satisfying their hunger for both knowledge AND healthy meals and snacks. Due to the strain and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have learned to pivot to reach our students in a way that continues to meet their educational and nutritional needs. As such, we are gearing up for another productive season of nutritious meals for our students this semester. As we plan and prepare to keep our Food Program strong and sustainable, we are in need of dependable, qualified volunteers to join our Food Program Team to execute our Meal Delivery Initiative. If you, or another referral, are interested in learning about this VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY to prep, package, drive, and/or deliver meals to our students in the Greater Atlanta area, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator immediately to get more details. This initiative is rolling out ASAP, so email or call us quickly! ***Drivers MUST have a VALID Driver's License.*** Cargo Vans and Insurance provided via Artportunity Knocks, Inc.
