Volunteer: Volunteers for Neighborhood Walkthroughs

Our Atlanta Team has begun community Walkthroughs on the west side. This will be a great opportunity for you, your service organization, or other students within your network to build relationships and directly impact our neighborhoods in a dynamic way. Walkthroughs will be this (and every) Saturday @ 10:30 a.m. -2 p.m.

Click here for Location/Directions

Boy With a Ball (BWAB) is an international nonprofit focused on youth, family, and community development. We are a collection of individuals who are passionate about compassion and who believe that relationship can change lives by helping people develop.

We exist to better cities by reaching young people and equipping them to be leaders capable of turning and transforming their communities.

 

What is a "Walkthrough?"
We refer to the community outreach on the west side as a "Walkthrough". Our team takes volunteers into an economically disadvantaged neighborhood with the purpose of building friendships with the members of the community. We then discover what challenges the youth are facing and help to develop solutions for equipping them to reach their dreams.

-We meet each Saturday morning at City of Refuge (who we partner with) in Atlanta to talk through the plans for the day and to brief anyone who is new. 

-We then split into groups of 4-5 people, including two of our own team members. Each group takes an assigned route of a few blocks. 

-After 1.5 - 2 hours of being in the community, we meet back at City of Refuge to debrief about who we met and what we learned. 

-The entire process will be from 11am - 2pm.  A group of us will go to lunch afterwards, and anyone is welcome.

Volunteer: Money Smart Week Volunteers

Money Smart Week

What is Money Smart Week?

Money Smart Week® is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media. These groups come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week.

Our organization is one of the local partners and we are co-chairing the Money Smart Teens and Kids Essay Contest.

This contest requires that we get the word out to middle schools and high school administrators and counselors about the contest and prizes.

We need assistance in contacting local schools to notify them of the contest and once we receive the essays, our University volunteers will review and help select the group of finalist students that will be in the running for the final prizes.

This year (2017) our sponsor is Country Financial. They have agreed to award $5,000 in gifts to the winning students. 

If you are interested in assisting, please notify us as soon as possible. We are in the process of coordinating this activity right now.

Volunteer: We Code Initiative - Python Coding

We Code Initiative


We Code is a new initiative we started last year which teaches middle and high school students about technology.

 We are piloting this program at Coretta Scott King Young Women's Leadership Academy and are looking for a group of well-rounded self-starters to help us fully develop and organize this initiative.

You will be a part of a team of students that will help direct about 15 middle school girls during an after-school program (once weekly for 8 weeks) designed to teach about computer science, in particular, the Python programming language.  We have been using Google but are interested in switching to Girls Who Code.

If you are interested in assisting, please notify us as soon as possible. We are in the process of coordinating this activity right now!
