Our Vision

Be a catalyst in our community to change lives by building meaningful relationships between individuals and families across all races, nationalities, and socio-economic classes in Peachtree Corners, Berkeley Lake, Norcross, and Duluth.

Why Corners Outreach?   Because Of The Message of Jesus.

Education is life changing.

Malcom Gladwell’s book Outliers … For American students from wealthy homes, summer vacation isn’t a problem; but, citing the research of a Johns Hopkins sociologist, Gladwell shows that it’s a profound handicap for students from poor homes, who actually outlearn their rich counterparts during the school year but then fall behind them when school lets out. “For its poorest students, America doesn’t have a school problem,” Gladwell concludes. “It has a summer-vacation problem.” So how to close the gap between rich and poor students? Get rid of summer vacation in inner-city schools…. or have summer reading and writing programs.

Opportunity for community members with desirable skills to share with those wanting to learn.

We believe most people enjoy helping others, but are not often presented with meaningful opportunities.  We believe the relationship model we are proposing will increase volunteerism, and we will actively seek those with training desired by others.

Our 2016 Vision

Presence in five Metro Atlanta schools, giving us the opportunity to impact 4,000 people. We are committed to catalyzing life change by building meaningful relationships across all races, nationalities, and socio-economic classes in Peachtree Corners, Berkeley Lake, Norcross, and Duluth.

 

Director Update

LarryCampbellGood day everyone. During the break between school classes, the Corners teams reviewed our 7 metrics and made some adjustments to attract more students, increase student progression, added school participation and more meetings with parents. We truly need more volunteers.

We reviewed and truly accept that know the next 90 days will set the school year and for some student’s their life trajectory will be determined. Within 90 days, our third graders and as well as others will take the states tests cores. 3rd to 4th grade testing is a direct correlation to high school graduation, a bench mark in life. The saying is “we learn to read so that we read to learn”. Learning continues a life time if you can read.  Today in Georgia, high school dropout is 33% across the state and almost twice that in lower income families. 

We are committed to do all we can for our students and the hope we have for them through education. After thinking about all we can do, our teammates decided we will begin a month of prayer starting February 1. The pdf is attached. We focus on 7 metrics so a daily prayer each day on one of our focus areas which will continue for 4 weeks.  The team has divided the areas and written their prayers below in hope that you will join us in praying. We are confident because we know Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 

Will you join us in praying for our schools, our teachers, our volunteers, our 350 students, our parents, our donors, and our Corners team (Ana Laura, Andrea, Carrie, Cinthia, Ronald and Travis? You can use these prayers or make you own.
