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.

LarryCampbellGeorgia standard test

Have you felt the impact on students for the state test? The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive summative assessment program spanning grades 3-12.  Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.  Students in grades 3 through 8 take an end-of-grade assessment in each content area. Here is a story of how our volunteers are trying to help.

Our students took the Milestone, a 2-week gauntlet that challenges students to use what they have learned this year to prove they are ready for the next. Given the longevity and intensity of this test, many kids became nervous, anxious, and stressed going through this process. One of our regular volunteers, Tori, empathized with our kids, and her heart moved her to bake dozens upon dozens of cookies for our homework club kids to congratulate and reward them for finishing the Milestone! This is what our kids need most– inspiration, encouragement, love, and a belief in them that they can achieve anything. We are so grateful for our committed volunteers that invest time and resources into these students, cultivating deep and meaningful relationships.

Summer Camp

Remember we start 2 summer camps when school ends May 31, for 9 weeks in the neighborhoods. Students continue reading, have physical games and crafts and earn free lunch.

Let us know if you would help sponsor lunch or a college summer intern or help with supplies and tents. Camp will serve over 250 students daily. This summer’s theme: Selfless (John 3:30); learning to put God and others before ourselves. Each week, we will focus on an idea, person, or group of people in scripture and highlight selflessness.

Each week of camp a youth group or service group helps lead. We have every week covered except June 13-17 and we are open in both locations. Let us know if your church or service group could help. We need about 10-15 volunteers at each location. It is an outdoor VBS with rotating stations. We will provide lunch and our team will be there to assist. We have a theme each week connected to Selfless (John 3:30).
