To encourage and provide opportunities for Atlantans to serve our great city through community service, outreach and youth development.
Making sure we reach everyone in need and spread the word brings forth accountability and guidance for communities. We are committed to continuing the work around voter registration, promoting city services, city events and resources that can aid anyone in need.
To see all Atlantans active and engage in helping one another thrive ; inevitably creates a positive, inclusive and progressive community.
WE NEED EACH OTHER
It’s easy to forget the necessity to coexist. When we are so caught up with our personal problems, we overlook other factors such as the community we live with and the area we inhabit. However, the community is much more than just a collective of people living together.
Developing a deeper sense of it means the drive to improve the areas you live, work and play in. Moreover, it means fighting for a safer, more peaceful and united lives for you and the people around you.
The Creating Our Atlanta team pours everything they have into engaging Atlantans to give back and lend a helping hand to those in need within our great city. Review who they are and what they do to learn more about their background.

Volunteering is not easy work. It’s an immersive venture that comes with its own sets of challenges. From lack of funding to be stuck in between socio-political turmoil in the outskirts of troubled countries, it gets extremely difficult.
However, the reward of surpassing these obstacles is unmatched. You are able to grow not merely as a volunteer but an individual and human being. You open yourself up to a challenging experience and you become willing to learn as well as making sacrifices. When you come back home, you would have been a changed person, only for the better.
