We serve over 700 participants and their families throughout North Georgia through 8 weeks of summer camp, 20 after-school enrichment programs, meaningful employment and job training, and ongoing family support. Our AmeriCorps Program Leaders gain experience working with the disability population and a wide range of individuals of all abilities; communicating with family members and service recipients; planning and implementing effective community programs; creating lesson plans and recreational programs; program evaluation and assessment; and leadership and management.
