We envision communities where youth have voice and value and ensure they possess the confidence, character, and collaborative networks needed to shape their world. YELLS serves the children and families of Franklin Gateway, a neighborhood in Marietta, Georgia, within 12 miles of the city of Atlanta. Our diverse community is composed of hard-working families facing generational and situational poverty. The goal of this VISTA project is to help ensure the youth and families of the Franklin Gateway community have the education and skills necessary to act as servant leaders who develop community-driven solutions for alleviating poverty. The YELLS AmeriCorps VISTA Project will build capacity for the success of all YELLS initiatives, including the YELLS Mentoring Program, YELLS Afterschool Program, YELLS Community Action Café, and YELLS Community Garden. The YELLS Marketing and Community Engagement Specialist VISTA will accomplish this through developing a sustainable marketing and engagement plan to reach and mobilize the entire Franklin Gateway community. Our dense community is home to over 8,000 residents living in 7 apartment complexes along a 2-mile stretch of road.
