Volunteer Spotlight

Today we hear from Kathy Tullos Young of Market Street Services about her first time volunteering at the JA Chick-fil-A Foundation Discovery Center.

As Principal and COO of a premier provider of community, workforce, and economic development strategic planning services, her perspective provides a look into the impact our programs can have on our entire community.

"I had heard great things about the Discovery Center – and after serving as a “Chief Volunteer Officer” alongside seven enthusiastic 6th graders from The Champion School in Stone Mountain Georgia – I can safely say that my expectations were easily met. The experiential program that JA Georgia has put together is impressive, and seamless integration of corporate partners turns what the students might have assumed would be a fun field trip into a realistic venture that is truly empowering and inspiring. The day trip to the Center (which serves 65,000 students a year) caps off an in-class curriculum-based experience led by teachers in the weeks prior to the visit."
