Youth Development

Bright Futures

In the neighborhood of 30314, only ~50% of the students graduate from high school. In addition, many who do graduate are not prepared for college or a career. Our on-campus partner, Bright Futures Atlanta, provides a fully-accredited academy for students in grades 6 - 12 offering a private-school education to those who otherwise could not afford the opportunity.

City of Refuge provides programming for children starting at birth. After elementary students graduate from the CORE program, they may join the Level Up youth program, designed for students in grades 6 through 12. This program effectively equips students from the 30314 community with the tools they need to succeed, such as mentoring, after-school programs, and summer camps.
