The Weekly High 5: Americorps Gets it Done in Atlanta


The Americorps gets things done.

You probably know Hands On Atlanta as the volunteer hub of the city, right? When you want to do something good, you give us a look. But, did you know we also run one of the largest Americorps programs in the south?

This week we kicked of our 2018 Americorps class, hosting 28 members for a week of learning and inspiration. These changemakers will each serve over 1700 hours inside and outside of the classroom at  5 Title 1 partner schools and 1 Centers of Hope. They'll be hands, helping over 1,000 elementary children with math, literacy and social emotional learning (SEL).
