Bright Futures scholars are called to rise up and overcome very harsh realities. Through education, discipleship, and personal development, Bright Futures gives students a safe environment in which they can grow and thrive. Jessica continues:
“When I took British Literature at Bright Futures, I struggled. Ms. Martinez told me: “I’ll hold your hand, but I’ll soon let go.” I took my book home, studied harder, and ended that class with an “A”. Now I tell my friends, ‘Never give up on the things that seem hard. The harder the struggle, the more glorious the triumph.’”
In an area with a high school graduation rate of less than 50%, Bright Futures graduated 100% of our seniors last year. We have nearly doubled our enrollment to serve 75 students, and we’ve expanded our classroom space to serve even more. We provided 31,093 meals and have taken students on out-of-state trips. We painted, played sports, and worked together as a family. We’re so excited to continue growing in the 2017/18 school year.
At Bright Futures Atlanta and Academy, over half of our operational costs came from you. And our students are never charged a dime. With your help, we can continue to provide life-giving opportunities to children in need.
