Our mission is to empower youth to grow into community leaders through mutually transformational relationships. We are focused on the Adair Park and Pittsburgh neighborhoods in Atlanta.
At Blueprint 58, we take arelational approach to community development, and work to accomplish our vision of a thriving community in Southwest Atlanta primarily through mentoring, sports, and community development.
Mentoring is at the heart of what we do at Blueprint58. Our mission is to empower youth to grow into community leaders through mutually transformational relationships. Part of how we accomplish this is to match Christian mentors with 4th grade students that can commit to at least two years, and our hope is that our mentors will walk alongside their student through high school.
Sports provides a way for us to mentor our middle and high school students through dedicated coaches and volunteers. In addition, it's an opportunity for community members to rally around their teams and get to know one another. We have basketball and football teams for youth up to age 18.
Finally, we also provide various personal development programs ranging from weekly Bible studies to a community support group for young moms in our neighborhood.
