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, Beatrice's Goat. Enjoy watching kids' faces light up through your storytelling 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: If you're interested in volunteering, please register. 

3. Attend, Read, Share, and Make an Impact. 


AFP's Philanthropy in the Classroom program is a one-hour lesson for third grade that begins with the volunteers reading a book to start a discussion with the students about philanthropy. The children are then invited to express their understanding of philanthropy both verbally and artistically through an art project that shows an example of how they can give their time, talent or treasure.
