Our Kids Atlanta
Our goal is to equip at-risk and underprivileged youth with the skills, abilities, and the sense of self-worth they’ll need to make good life decisions about education, career, family and relationships, and also to buffer them from the risk factors that threaten their progression into productive adulthood – factors such as the easy availability of drugs, physical abuse and neglect, neighborhood violence, poverty and low neighborhood attachment, negative peer pressure, and early academic failure, to name a few.
Our mission at Project F.L.E.E is to help our youth flee poverty, illiteracy, teen pregnancy, gang participation and a life without purpose through mentoring and leadership development. We strive to create a safe haven for youth that is fun, educational and inspirational. Students who learn to challenge themselves aren’t challenged by life. Learning to make sound decisions as well as being able to learn from one’s mistakes helps to ensure youth have a strong foundation when they enter into society. We at Project FLEE are all for giving them the opportunities to decide what it is they desire to do, how as well as ‘why’.
