SCHOLARS IN SERVICE PROGRAM

The beauty of Atlanta is that its residents are more than just residents – we are a tightly knit group of citizens who love our city and are committed to strengthening all aspects of our community.  

To foster the next generation of Atlanta’s community leaders and philanthropists, Covenant House Georgia (CHGA) offers an elite scholarship program that is rooted in the spirit of service and designed to cultivate a dedication to community, lifelong learning, and humanity to high school students across the Metro Atlanta area.  

Select students will come together from October to January to learn the ins and outs of the non-profit community in Atlanta and to contribute their own strengths and skillsets to the continual improvement of our city. After learning about youth homelessness, service, and giving from some of Atlanta’s philanthropic and business leaders, the students will execute service projects at CHGA designed to raise awareness and meet specific needs with respect to youth homelessness in Atlanta. As they work together to creatively and innovatively address a prominent social issue, each student will also raise funds and awareness to make a profound impact in the lives of an often invisible subgroup of their own generation. At the conclusion of the program, the student who raises the most funds for the youth at Covenant House Georgia will be awarded the $2,500 Scholars in Service Scholarship and will have the honor of presenting a college-bound Covenant House youth a matching $2,500 scholarship.  

During this journey, the students will make lasting connections with other students and Atlanta’s philanthropic and business leaders, build service into their resumes to reflect their personal values, and broaden their understanding of social issues and services.
