The Future Foundation Needs Your Help to Continue Youth Development Programs , East Point, Georgia

It’s often said children are the future. To build a better tomorrow, it’s critical to provide them with a strong foundation. The Future Foundation in Atlanta, GA, believes every child has the potential to change the world for the better. They also know not all kids have it easy. Many Atlanta-area young people struggle with poverty and a lack of access to fundamentals like quality education and healthcare. They work to bridge the gap and fulfill these basic needs, so kids can reach their full potential. However, they can’t do it alone. Organizations rely on the support of community volunteers and donors to implement youth development programs. 

youth developmentLike most issues, poverty doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Numerous factors can contribute to a family’s socioeconomic distress. Any of these factors, as well as poverty itself, create obstacles kids must work hard to overcome. The Future Foundation sees the bigger picture in breaking the poverty cycle, which is why they’ve developed a five-point strategy, focused on fostering positive relationships, academic enrichment, family support, health, and life skill development. All of these elements are provided through a variety of after-school youth development programs. 

These programs help teach kids to make smart choices and develop healthy relationships. Teens receive the support they need to navigate tough subjects ranging from peer pressure and drug use to sex and dating. The programs also encourage kids to explore their interests and talents, fostering a love of learning and intellectual curiosity. Kids can take college tours, complete admissions applications, and discuss higher education and career possibilities.

To keep these integral support services and education programs afloat, the Future Foundation needs monetary support, as well as dedicated volunteers and community supporters. They partner with other community organizations and businesses to provide kids with wraparound services to supply basic needs, as well as giving them access to internships and mentoring opportunities. In addition to partnering as a business or organization, you can help individually by becoming a tutor, mentor, or educator.
