Southwest Atlanta Neighboring http://swan-atl.org

 SWAN exists to develop young urban leaders in Southwest Atlanta who are prepared to advocate for their community. The vision of the organization is to see youth of SWAN become positive, respectful (of self and others), secure, proactive, purposeful leaders, who can advocate for causes inside or outside of their community with diligence and dignity as well-spoken, well-educated, broad-minded productive citizens.

ASPIRE (Atlanta Sons Pledging to Improve, Respond, & Energize) Mentoring Program is an attempt to improve the outlook of young boys in the Southwest Atlanta Community.  We hope to provide them with a stronger view of themselves, their future, and their leadership within the community.  Our desire is to find caring and committed adults like you to accomplish this goal by providing quality mentoring to them.  The program will provide boys with a mentor who believes in the mission of SWAN (Southwest Atlanta Neighboring) and the ASPIRE Mentorship Program.
