$6,440.00 raisedGOAL: $30,000.00
According to the Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network, there are not enough summer programs in Georgia to meet the demand for these essential opportunities. To help fill this gap, VOX intentionally offers key leadership and skill-building programs during the summer:
- Three sessions of VOX Media Café for 36 teens
- Internships for six teens, who earn stipends, which shows them hard work is valued and financially rewarded
- Collaboration with ArtsATL on their Teen Cultural Correspondents series
- Coaching, practice space and resources to prepare the Atlanta team for Brave New Voices
- A safe space that comes with engagement and food for the rest of the teens in our afterschool program
Join us to raise $30,000 for Summer at VOX by June 30th (the end of our fiscal year)! These funds will support:
- Scholarships for 10 teens to attend VMC: $8,000
- Teen leadership stipends: $6,500
- Staff time to implement VMC: $5,000
- Brave New Voices: $4,000
- Teen transportation/MARTA: $3,000
- Health snacks and meals: $2,000
- Program supplies: $750
- Volunteer costs: $750
