Breakthrough Atlanta Student Interview Volunteers

Help Breakthrough Atlanta select its new class of college-bound students!

Breakthrough Atlanta equips aspiring, economically-disadvantaged youth to become the first in their families to attend and graduate college. Your support is needed to facilitate group interview sessions with nearly 300 applicants to our six-year college prep program. Volunteers will serve in pairs, guiding groups of 10 students through discussions and team building activities that will help us select 150 talented youth to begin our program in June.

Volunteers will serve on Saturday, April 13th, from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old with adult supervision. This opportunity is not suitable for court-ordered volunteers. 

In addition, adult volunteers must undergo and pass a criminal history check. The cost of the criminal history check is $39 and is initially paid by the volunteer. Once volunteers have served three times with Breakthrough (within two years), then they are reimbused for the cost of the criminal history check.

This volunteer opportunity is part of Hands On Atlanta's Civic Leadership Program and is led by a trained Civic Fellow. The Civic Leadership Program transforms volunteer leaders into civic leaders while also supporting the needs of nonprofits.
