Atlanta Youth Project
“Serving the youth of Atlanta by filling a year round need for spiritual, emotional, social, educational, and physical development.”
The Atlanta Youth Project’s vision is to establish relationships in underserved neighborhoods to provide the support, resources and encouragement necessary to build vibrant communities and promote positive youth leadership. By providing safe and easy access for volunteers wishing to serve the city, the Atlanta Youth Project strives to bring suburban and urban communities into partnership.
In 1991, Larry Teem founded the Atlanta Youth Project. In 1997 he founded the Atlanta Youth Academy. He took the skills he developed serving as a youth minister in the suburbs and used them to create year round youth programs for low-income neighborhoods.
The Atlanta Youth Project continues to seek new opportunities and innovative ways to reach urban youth in Atlanta. Through full-time staff, interns, summer camp counselors, coaches, and a large force of volunteers, the Atlanta Youth Project strives to embody a spirit of servant-hood that urban neighbors of all ages can both understand and experience.
