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.

LarryCampbellHomeWork Club Launches in 3 Locations      

Homework Club kicked off earlier this month in three different locations. This gives us 3 focus opportunities and connection points to invest in over 400 students weekly, along with their families and teachers, to promote education and to be meaningful influences in our communities. But with an increase in students needing help, the need for volunteers also increases. With our combined daily attendance, we need approximately 36 volunteers every day.

NewsletterA local accounting firm in Norcross, Hancock Askew, became aware of our efforts at Corners Outreach with homework club. The firm decided to hold a community service day, close the office for the afternoon, and send out their team of 30+ folks to serve at our 3 homework clubs for a day. It was an awesome experience, having the whole company willing to invest in local school students who really need their help. We appreciate the team at Hancock Askew for their hearts of service.

Here are just a few quotes from the folks who served with us:

  • I felt like I was really making a difference in a child’s life by investing time in their education. I was unsure if I could really help at the start, but by the end, I could see that the kids I helped really understood what we did together. It was really rewarding!
  • I enjoyed meeting and working with the students. They all were a pleasure to be around and on their best behavior.
  • Personally, I enjoyed how the service event was down to Earth — kids came after school and we spent time with them i.e. there was no sense of a larger heroic mission of saving the next generation of potential leaders and producers of our great nation… nothing grandiose like that.
  • The opportunity with Corners Outreach allowed us to see how hard teachers and volunteers work to better children’s lives. We were able to see the joy kids have when people are active in furthering their education.

Can you volunteer? We hope so. We assist with learning by answering questions about homework and skill building (reading out loud, reading comprehension and math practice). Everyone can help. We also give out a snack daily.
