Milton paint drive

The spring 2019 Milton High School SIA cohort hosted their group service project on May 18th, in collaboration with Global Paint for Charity. Together they gathered over 2,600 cans of paint and raised $2,600! Read more about their project and see photos here.

Student spotlight

The 2018-2019 SIA cohorts may have wrapped up, but our students aren’t stopping any time soon! We are excited to share spotlights on our SIA students, for you to get to know them and the amazing work they’re doing. First up: Rahul G. from our North Fulton cohort. Learn about Rahul and his project, Pencils for a Purpose, here.

Sparks 2019

In April we hosted our end-of-year event, Sparks, which was an evening of celebration and gratitude for everyone who made the 2018-2019 Social Innovators Academy program a success. Read a full recap of the event here, and see all the photos here.
