Mission Statement

The Discovery Program is a model educational initiative which boosts the aspirations and self-confidence of students through a multi-faceted, volunteer-led program.

The program strives to:

1. Encourage children to see the importance of education.

2. Broaden their horizons.
3. Be a positive force in their lives.

Description

The Hands On Atlanta Discovery Program is a volunteer-led Saturday tutoring and enrichment program that supports Monday - Friday instruction throughhomework assistance, tutoring, educational games, and enrichment through field trips and service-learning projects. Sessions occur two or three Saturdays per month for two hours (10am - noon). Our goal is to get as close to one-on-one volunteer to student ratio as possible to allow for more individualized attention and to develop relationships between students and adult volunteers. Students are divided up by grade level and the activities for each grade are planned by grade captains who manage the classroom activities. During the months of March and April, the Discovery Program supports the schools’ needs by providing students with CRCT (Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests from the Georgia Performance Standards) practice. Students are engaged in math, language arts, social studies and science.
