Discovery @ Brookview Elementary

Saturday, December 1 From 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM (East Point)

The Hands On Atlanta Discovery program is a volunteer-led Saturday tutoring and enrichment program. The program reinforces weekday learning through academic assistance, educational games, field trips, service-learning projects, and other enrichment activities. Students are engaged in a variety of subjects depending on the needs of their particular schools. Our goal is to have a one-on-one volunteer to student ratio, allowing for individualized attention and the building of relationships between students and volunteers.

Meadow Habitat Restoration

Saturday, December 1 From 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Buckhead)

Blue Heron Nature Preserve is seeking a small group of volunteers to assist with restoring the meadow habitat spaces along our outdoor trails. As the weather is becoming increasingly cooler, we will be removing many of the plants and flora which seasonally bloomed during the summer, but have now died back. This project will entail working outdoors to pull, cut, and remove large plants, as well as general trail maintenance and clean up.

Moving in the Spirit Holiday Store

Saturday, December 8 with shifts From 8:30 AM - 6:00 PM (Old Fourth Ward)

Moving in the Spirit is an award-winning creative youth development program that uses dance to teach young people the social, emotional and cognitive skills they need to thrive. The Holiday Store is a festive and meaningful event that impacts the lives of 250 children and teens each holiday season. Our students earn "points" every class for meeting their dance and leadership commitments. At the Holiday Store, they use those points to "buy" gifts for their families and loved ones, reinforcing their sense of hard work, compassion, and giving. Volunteers will provide assistance with set-up (decorating, setting up stations, separating donations, etc.), gift-wrapping, helping children as personal shoppers, checkout help, and clean up.
