Welcome to CARE Atlanta!
Meet our Chapter Coordinators
In metro Atlanta, the Atlanta Bar Association and the Judges of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia have partnered to provide financial literacy and credit education to high school students through CARE for more than fifteen years. Attorney volunteers typically pair up with a judge to give hour-long presentations to high school juniors and seniors to help them understand the basics of credit and how to intelligently manage their credit cards and credit card debt. At last count, CARE Atlanta had 50 volunteers (though not all are active). We have worked with schools all over the Atlanta metro area including schools in Atlanta and Fulton, DeKalb, and Cobb Counties.
As one educator at a Title I school we visited wrote, “Your services are desperately needed. The more we all know about finances and credit, hopefully, the better we do. Thank you for the impact you are having on young people. This is such an excellent program for high school students.” This statement, directly from a teacher with whom we work, sums up the impact our program has had on students in our area. Another reported: “One of my seniors just informed me that she is now deciding to go to college because of the information she received” from the presentation.
Interested in having a CARE presenter visit your school or speak with your youth group?
