2020 MLK Youth Service Day

Attention High School Students in Georgetown!  We want to hear about issues important to high school students in Georgetown.  Please click here for more info on how to take the survey.  The top 3 issues identified by you will drive the agenda for the 2020 Youth Voices Summit, set for March 11, 2020.   Thank you!

It’s not too late!! The holidays bring an opportunity to help the most vulnerable children in our community – children like Becca.  Please watch this 4 minute video to learn more about her story.  It’ll stir your heart!  We hear many stories like Becca’s.  But you can be a part of the solution.  Please help us to provide a safety net for these at-risk students by donating to our NEST Empowerment Center for #GivingTuesday.

Click here for current NEST information!  It takes $2,000 per year to support just one homeless/at risk high school student at our NEST Empowerment Center. Would you help us raise $10,000 to support five students this year?  Donate here. (Please notate “The NEST” in the comment section.) Thank you!

 

Did you know that you can donate to The Georgetown Project through the AmazonSmile program?  It costs you nothing.   Every time you make an eligible purchase through AmazonSmile, we receive a percentage!  You just need to designate “GeorgetownProject” as your charity of choice.  Simply go to  https://smile.amazon.com from your web browser and start shopping!  (NOT amazon.com – it has the identical products, but it’s a division of Amazon)

THANK YOU!
