Over the past fifteen years, we have proven that our methods work. We have implemented our three core programs within 15 Atlanta Public and Fulton County schools and our afterschool program has produced a 100% graduation rate among our teen participants since 2007. Creating access to quality education has always been at the heart of metro Atlanta’s civil rights movement. And it continues to be the single most important civil and human rights issue today. Two women – Ann Cramer and Jean Childs Young – have done so much more for Atlanta’s youth through education. We celebrate Curley Dossman, recipient of the Jean Childs Young Leadership in Education Award; celebrate Georgia Power, recipient of the Ann Cramer Corporate Leadership in Education Award; and Atlanta’s long legacy of philanthropic investments in education for underserved youth. Future Foundation is honored to be able to celebrate their contributions and legacies through these awards. Metro Atlanta – and especially our children – need to know their stories. The Keep It 100% Luncheon celebrates Atlanta’s past, and honors our current investments in education for underserved youth, so we move into the future as informed and strategic agents of change. Let’s all KEEP IT 100%!
Prepare to stand out.
