Our Programs

Just Say YES to Youth initiative

We work closely with schools and parents to assign each child a mentor or academic buddy. Our team evaluates the mentor and academic buddy, the child and the parent or guardian to ensure that the relationship is meaningful, impactful and safe for everyone involved.

Metamorphasis Powerhouse Company mentors establish genuine relationships with their mentee(s) to empower them with the necessary skills for everyday life. 
Our organization looks forward to making a lasting impact in the next generation by closing the intergenerational divide between adults and youth.

We need a wide variety of strengths and skills to help a child in need today, which will change their tomorrow!
Learn more about becoming a Mentor or Academic Buddy in our opportunity listings on Volunteer Match.

growth mindset & design thinking

The concept of a growth mindset was developed by psychologist Carol Dweck and popularized in her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.

Our Programs propel
Self-Determination because we know students who embrace growth mindsets- the belief that they can learn more or become smarter if they work hard and preserve- may learn more, learn it more quickly, and view challenges and failures as opportunities to improve their learning and skills.

Our programs inspire Self-Discovery because students who learn how to leverage growth mindset, adapt to challenges easier and discover more about their own abilities to create solutions both in and outside of the classrooms. 

Through growth mindset, we help students learn that every choice has a positive or negative consequence, and by thinking before they act about preferred outcomes, they can make wiser life choices and avoid negative decisions.

language nutrition/ grade-level reading

Our Just Say YES to Reading program is a four-day before or afterschool program offering Academic literacy, Financial Literacy, and STE(A)M.

Students are invited to our community learning labs in partnership with Barnes & Noble & South Fulton Library, where they participate in peer-led reading by kid authors, write their own stories, and explore the concept of putting voice and action behind their thoughts.

High school students are invited to participate in the Youth Leadership Academy- a quarterly meet up where they learn civic engagement through community service, town halls, and peer-to-peer mentoring opportunities.

Our #WITHSTEMUCAN Saturdays Program in partnership with Microsoft is a monthly immersion session with themed project-based  hands-on activities to increase historically under-served students with access to fundamentals in coding, computer science, engineering, mechanics, math, The Arts, and expose them to STEM mentors.
