When Future Foundation asked students ages 13 and 14 in urban Atlanta neighborhoods about their future, 95% believed they would graduate from high school and 90% believed they would graduate college. In reality, less than half will actually graduate high school and less than one-third will attend college.
Future Foundation’s mission is to level the playing field for metro-Atlanta youth by providing quality education, health and life skills programs, and its impact has been amazing!
How Do We Do It?
As a nonprofit organization (501(c)(3)), Future Foundation directly serves over 1,000 students in grades 5-12 through several programs.
RealTalkATL, as featured on CNN (clip), sparks conversations about healthy choices regarding sex, love, dating and relationships through partnerships with area underperforming schools and community centers.
The Reef House Learning Center for 5th-7th graders and the Reef Teen Center for 8th-12th graders are supervised, secure environments where experienced staff and certified teachers cultivate an atmosphere of excellence in academics, health and leadership. Many of the youth served are at risk because their parents and grandparents were at risk.
Future Foundation takes a holistic approach by empowering parents to engage in their youth’s success through its Parent Connect program.
