Innovation, inspiration, and social justice all packed into an eventful first week of October.

As Atlanta's hub for all things volunteering and service, we've partnered up with some of the coolest events to hit "The city too busy to hate" for a weekend of good. Learn how (or join) skills based volunteers will transform the future of 48 nonprofits in just 48 hours, take a deep dive into innovation and inspiration with stories from some of Georgia's top changemakers, and uncover how hip culture is influencing social change.  Meet our partners: 

From Oct. 6th - 8th, 48in48 will deliver over $1,200,000 of value to 48 nonprofits in the form of 48 websites, a few logos, and other marketing collateral to help nonprofits grow.


The ninth annual TEDxPeachtree is Oct. 6 and will feature some of Georgia's most innovative thinkers and doers who will each go beyond the headlines to share ideas that drive the future, help spark change and that celebrate human ingenuity!



The A3C Action Summit invites activists, academics and artists to discuss and address social justice challenges. The 2-day summit (Oct. 5th - 6th) will host a series of panels, workshops, the 3rd annual A3C Action Pitch Competition.
