Growth Identity Readiness Leadership Service

Back to School!

We hope all our girls, mentors, volunteers, and parents have a successful transition back to school!

Dekalb County had their Back-to-School Bash July 23rd to get the kids excited about the upcoming 2022-2023 school year! Events like this are great for our organization so we can create connections. We're really looking forward to working with a few schools in Dekalb this year!
Atlanta Public Schools also had a Back-to-School Bash this past weekend and GOE came to represent!

In the top photo our board members are photographed with Joi Hunter, the Executive Director of Partnerships and Development for Atlanta Public Schools.

In the bottom our board members are photographed with Natalie Hall, the Commissioner of Fulton County District 4.

Safe to say GOE is always making connections! We're excited to have met these amazing ladies and thrilled to see what we can accomplish together!
