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 experiencing homelessness and escaping 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.

Covenant House Georgia's YPS launched in the summer of 2019 with 16 members joining the inaugural year. In just one year, YPS members have raised over $12,000 for the mission of CHGA.

YPS event highlights

SLEEP OUT: YOUNG PROFESSIONALS - JUNE 26, 2020

Young Professionals of Atlanta slept out to stand in solidarity with youth experiencing homelessness.

4.2 million youth in America will face homelessness this year. According to a homeless youth count done by Georgia State University, there are 3,300 homeless youth in metro Atlanta alone. In the wake of COVID-19, we know that this number will be higher than before leaving youth experiencing homelessness in our city needing our help now more than ever. 

Through this, Covenant House Georgia is committed to providing these young people shelter, safety, and resources for stability. This stability can be made possible for young people through dedicated community members joining with Covenant House Georgia through the Sleep Out Movement.

Over 130 Atlanta professionals on Friday, June 26, 2020, raised awareness and funds to support our youth in rebuilding their futures during this time of uncertainty and send a clear message to youth experiencing homelessness in Atlanta that they are not alone.

CHECK OUT THE SLEEPERS!
