Scholars in Service

Scholars in Service Program

This fall, Covenant House Georgia is offering the opportunity for a select group of high school students to learn more about the causes and effects of homelessness while making a profound impact in the lives of young people experiencing homelessness. Those selected will hear from some of Atlanta’s  business and non-profit leaders about the key issues surrounding homelessness and have the opportunity to develop leadership skills necessary to make an impact. In short they will learn how to be Philanthropists! During this journey they will make personal and lasting connections through service projects, round table discussions, and a philanthropy course.  

Program Outline

Scholars in Service will meet multiples times over the course of the fall semester for service and learning opportunities. Participants will fundraise for Covenant House and the youth we serve throughout this time. The top fundraiser will be awarded a $2500 scholarship and will have the honor of presenting a college bound Covenant House youth with a matching scholarship.Tips and tools for fundraising will be shared as part of the program curriculum.
