JOIN OUR YOUNG PROFESSIONAL SOCIETY!

Grounded in service, fundraising, and advocacy, members of the Young Professionals Society (YPS) support Covenant House Georgia's mission to raise awareness and create change in the lives of youth in Atlanta who are facing homelessness and trafficking. YPS members are energetic professionals who desire to have a year-round impact at Covenant House. The society partakes in efforts of raising funds for CHGA's programming, participating in service projects that increase sanctuary on campus, and building community both internally and externally with the city of Atlanta through events, socials, and meetings.

The Young Professional Society is currently on hold through the end of Spring 2021 to continue to do our part in keeping our community safe during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and due to active consturction on our campus to revamp our current spaces and build additional housing for young people. We hope to relaunch the group in late Summer of 2021.

YPS event highlights

Spring Sleep Out - March 19, 2021

Young Professionals of Atlanta slept out to stand in solidarity with youth facing homelessness and trafficking.

On March 19th, Atlanta young professionals took part in a national, virtual Sleep Out along with 7 other Covenant House sites across the country. This year, Covenant House Georgia combined our annual Young Professionals and Women Unite Sleep Out events, invited families to join the movement, and in total 80 Georgia sleepers made an incredible collective impact for youth facing homelessness and trafficking in our city! Spring sleepers joined an interactive, virtual program from home comprised of breakout sessions, staff and alumni youth interviews, all for a night of education and advocacy alongside their fellow Covenant House community. Then, sleepers braved an uncomfortable night of sleep from their own backyards, garages, living room floors, cars, and more, to stand in solidarity with young people facing homelessness and trafficking.

Atlanta young professionals virtually joined over 600 people through the nationwide Sleep Out helping to raise awareness and over $76,000 to support the resilient youth at Covenant House Georgia. This support provides young people continued access to 24/7 care and resources through our programs as they continue to strive towards their goals and dreams.

CHECK OUT THE SLEEPERS!
