Scholars will meet once a month on Covenant House Georgia’s campus to cultivate a further understanding of the realities, issues, and available resources for youth experiencing homelessness and escaping trafficking in Atlanta.
Find dates and details for the Fall 2020 Scholars in Service Cohort below.
If social distancing practices are still in effect in response to COVID-19 during the program dates, the program will be held virtually.
Today we will learn more about Covenant House and the realities of youth homelessness. How do youth become homeless at such a young age? How does Covenant House help youth get off the streets while empowering them and building their resiliency? Why is homelessness an issue in Atlanta, a city bustling with economic growth? In exploring these topics we will share how Covenant House Georgia provides a health and human safety net for Atlanta’s most vulnerable residents. We will discuss in full the Scholars in Service program and kickstart each Scholar's fundraising efforts through breaking down the essentials of philanthrophy and peer to peer fundraising.
Today we will learn about special issue topic: trafficking and how trafficking specificly effects youth experiencing homelessness from the subject experts at CHGA. Then we will break up into roundtables for a small group discussion with current Covenant House youth.
Today we will learn about the importance of service and philanthropy and how they work together to help our community. We will also complete a holiday service project to turn our discussion into action for our community.
Today the Scholars' families and friends will be invited to CHGA's campus for the closing ceremony. The cohort winner will be announced and awarded the $2,500 Scholars in Service Scholarship. The winner will also present the $2,500 matching scholarship to a college-bound CHGA client. Afterwards, all will be able to participate in the capstone service project in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on CHGA's campus for a family service event.
