This Saturday, and every Saturday, join us from 11-2 for Love Your City community walkthroughs and tutoring in an apartment community in Norcross, Ga as we team together in walking through the community and getting to know families or helping students ages 5-15 in the tutoring center.
Love Your City weaves a city together to mobilize young people to walk into hurting neighborhoods and builds relationships with every person living there, offering friendship and support to help community member reach their dreams.
In the midst of this pandemic crisis, many families and students are in an extremely vulnerable situation. The students at this Norcross community are struggling with homework because 1) they do not have as many resources as they would have at school; and 2) their parents do not speak English, which hinders their ability to help their kids with homework. This is where you come in; by empowering students and their families, you are helping to save this generation by keeping their dreams alive regardless of the circumstances. We need you, they need you .
Come help us Love Our City!
