WE BELIEVE IN THE HUMAN RIGHT TO EDUCATION
What is quality education and why is it a human right?
Quality education enables people to develop all of their attributes and skills to achieve their potential as human beings and members of society.
In the words of the Delors Commission (UNESCO, 1996): “Education is at the heart of both personal and community development; its mission is to enable each of us, without exception, to develop all our talents to the full and to realize our creative potential, including responsibility for our own lives and achievement of our personal aims.”
Quality education is a human right and a public good.
Quality education provides the foundation for equity in society.
Quality education is one of the most basic public services. It not only enlightens but also empowers citizens and enables them to contribute to the maximum extent possible to the social and economic development of their communities.

Just Say YES to Youth Initiative Programs
The Just Say YES to Youth Initiative is devoted to helping historically underserved and at-risk students, families, and communities that are used to consistently hearing
“No, there isn’t enough funding… No, there isn’t enough time...and No, there isn’t anyone available to help” to finally get a YES.
We say YES there is a solution for grade-level reading and language nutrition gaps.
We say YES there is a way to provide innovative opportunities to expose children living in communities where there are limited high-technology employment opportunities to still access science, technology, engineering and math.
We say YES there is a pathway forward to success, when working collectively together to convene resources with community stakeholders where we can educate, advocate, mobilize, network, resource information and when needed- provide charitable relief.
Sneak Peek of our Youth Programs In Action
Thanks to the awesome partnerships with community stakeholders that allow us to transform their public spaces into real-world, innovative public learning classrooms we can enthusiastically say YES we are shifting what equity in education looks like all across Georgia where historically underserved students and their families live, work and play.
