Discover Groups - Atlanta

-- Atlanta, Georgia

Weekend or Week-Long term
Ages 13+
DOOR

 

 

​Discover Group participants spend time serving with a variety of local agencies and ministries and learning through evening speakers and activities. The experience is about more than preparing a meal at a soup kitchen or playing with children at a day camp. It is an opportunity to work alongside local community members, to learn from local leaders, and to listen to the stories of neighbors, clients, and churches.

Atlanta
A DOOR Atlanta Discover experience centers on the theme of Bread for the Journey and answers the question of "who is our neighbor?" by using the Bible and writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Participants engage this theme and focus question through service work and community interactions. All participants go to The King Center to learn more about social justice and the changes the city of Atlanta has experienced because of the Civil Rights Movement.

DOOR Atlanta partners with 32 agencies across the city. Participant service experiences may include:

  • A local soup kitchen
  • Packing and sending medical supplies to third world countries
  • Working on a local urban farm

Discover group participants must be 13 & older. If you would like to include youth under 13 in your group, please contact DOOR first. Weeklong groups can accept 6-70 participants; weekend groups can accept 6-45 participants.​
