What we're about

Welcome to the Atlanta Volunteers. If you click on our link for past events, you will see over 10 years and hundreds of events for the citizens of Georgia. Use this to dream big about what can be possible!

Our success is due to volunteers with a vision to help others. If your event is a true volunteer event, please ask to be an event leader so that you can post your event and manage your volunteers.

You help others quite a bit already without even thinking about it. Families, friends, sports, church, work as well as opening doors and giving random smiles away are just some of the many things you do everyday to help people without thinking about it.

I would like to invite you to be a leader and create an event for fun and with the goal of helping people. Sharing joy in this world is one of the greatest volunteer activities you can do and combining fun with your event will make it a success.

My passion for being a volunteer centers around my son who has Down Syndrome. The project to find employment, quality of life and respite care for a wide variety of conditions can be found at https://theabilityrevolution.com (https://theabilityrevolution.com/)

I am currently the leader of Pack 114 Special Scouts. This is made up of boys, girls, men and women with special needs. Nobody ages out of the program and all are welcome. Forsyth County allows us to use an indoor heated pool with a meeting space for our scouts, as well as great use of county facilities such as campgrounds and nature centers. I am willing to share this access with anyone who has a true volunteer event. Please contact me alan@theabilityrevolution.com if you live in the Forsyth County area and would like to be involved.

In the above link you can read about plans for a free boarding school for a few disabled adults located at an aquatic center. Business at the aquatic center funds the boarding school which is on the top floor of the aquatic center. The marketing for the aquatics is at a site called https://tropicaladventurecompetition.com (https://tropicaladventurecompetition.com/) .

We have shot the pilot for this 30 episode series that is our marketing, and I could sure use some volunteer help to finish this! My biggest need right now is for reliable people to help with aquatic programs on Saturday for our scouts and the second biggest need I have is to form a local production crew to film and produce episodes for our 30 teams that each feature a special volunteer cause.

One last thing, please login to your Kroger shopping card and list the Atlanta Volunteers as your chosen charity. We do business as the Atlanta Volunteers but our nonprofit name is called Forsyth Area Sports Teams.

Cheers
