Our Discovery program provides tutoring, homework help, and structured enrichment activities; teaching health and wellness, STEM concepts and financial literacy.
Each school year, Discovery occurs in Title I, public schools, with volunteers serving nearly 800 students two Saturdays per month throughout the school year. The average Discovery school is receiving 88% free and reduced lunch, Discovery also combats student hunger by providing breakfast snacks and lunch through the Georgia Food Bank Association’s Child and Adult Care Food Program.
PROGRAMS + INITIATIVES
We partner with Kids Interested in Technology, Engineering and Science (KITES), Inc. Students participate in activities teaching concepts ranging from computer science to molecular biology to renewable energy.
Discovery provides an opportunity for students begin to learn how to manage money through Hands on Banking®, a Wells Fargo program.
Discovery volunteers often become a friend and mentor to kids in the program resulting in a child who believes in his/herself and has hope for a brighter future.
