Centers of Hope

In partnership with Cities of Service and the Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation, the city launched Centers of Hope, an after-school tutoring and mentoring program that has served 350 young people. The city is now poised to expand the Centers of Hope model to 10 community centers throughout the city, and is working to ensure that the physical renovations and improvements of these centers are aligned with the Mayor’s vision and expectations for all Centers of Hope.
