AFP GA, Greater Atlanta Chapter: Philanthropy in the Classroom
Join volunteers from AFP Atlanta and the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta in planting seeds of philanthropy in elementary classrooms throughout our city. Volunteers are needed to inspire future generations to make a positive impact in our community through actions and words. Spend one hour reading from the book, City Green, an uplifting tale of cooperation and community building. Enjoy watching kids' faces light up through your stortelling and help them demonstrate ideas through artwork. Share your personal experiences and role in making the world a better place.
Volunteering is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3
1. Decide, "Yes, I want to help."
2. Sign Up: Contact Mary Ellen Cenzalli and Lauren McCarthy
3. Attend, Read, Share and Make an Impact.

In 2009, AFP Atlanta launched the Philanthropy in the Classroom
program to introduce to elementary children the concept of philanthropy.
The program's growth includes a strong partnership with the Kiwanis Club,
National Philanthropy Day Presenting Sponsors. The children’s artwork
created through this program is displayed at National Philanthropy Day.
AFP volunteers have worked with an estimated 500 children in multiple
elementary schools throughout Atlanta.
