Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
YES!Atlanta enrolls "at-risk" inner-city teens and supports them with long-term mentoring by trained adult mentors recruited from throughout our city. Our goal is to have participants graduate from high school, while reducing or eliminating self-defeating behavior that hinders their maturing into fulfilled, responsible and productive members of their community.
YES!Atlanta's Rising Star Program was created in 1990. Targeting inner city teenagers, Rising Star is a year-long mentoring program that supports participants in fulfilling goals they set for themselves upon entering the program. We were named a "Point of Light" by President George H. W. Bush, in honor of the effectiveness of our work with teenagers. Since its creation Rising Star has worked with nearly 1,000 youngsters to open new possibilities in their lives and end their hopelessness about their future.
