Discovery Program @ Panola Way

Saturday November 10 From 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Lithonia)

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.

Thanksgiving Dinner With the Community is for those who need a meal, and for those who would like to share a meal.

This meal is for the “Haves and the Have-nots”. All volunteers are asked to sit and eat and spend time with our guests, in addition to their volunteer assignment.
