Disrupting the cycle of poverty, one student at
The Future Foundation started as an afterschool program in some of Atlanta’s most underfunded schools. Now, it has grown into a paradigm-shifting network that changes the lives of South Fulton’s 6th-12th graders—and the underserved communities in which they live—for the better.

THE SECOND-FAMILY MODEL?
An innovative, replicable, poverty-disrupting network that is the secret to the Future Foundation’s staggering success.
Research shows that the involvement, encouragement, and support of one non-parental adult in a child’s life is a defining factor that can propel them to success as an adult.
At the Future Foundation, we supply middle and high school students with an entire community of supportive adults—a second family—from teachers and tutors to executives in the corporate, executive, and nonprofit sectors.
Through afterschool and summer programs, corporate visits, and family support sessions, Future Foundation students build a network of caring adults and broaden their vision for their futures.
