When the garden was vandalized by students, the science teacher had the idea to reach out to Paint Love to see if we could involve the students in making the garden a place every student was proud of and felt ownership over. In partnership with The Creatives Project, artist Meta Gary is working with almost every class at Austell to create signage, a mural, a path, outside chalkboards for classes, and decorated benches for the learning garden. This event will be the final students/parent/community volunteer day as well a re-opening celebration for the learning garden!

THE PROJECT: 

This project will be at the DeKalb County location and serve kids ages 5-11 who attend counseling at the Center. Awesome artist Samantha Muntz will be leading this event! 

THE ORGANIZATION:

The Georgia Center for Child Advocacy serves children and their families when there are allegations of child abuse, neglect, or when children are witnesses to violence. They help various agencies such as law enforcement, DFCS, and the DA's office coordinate services for children and families by providing forensic interviews for children, hosting multi-disciplinary team meetings to share information, and providing therapy for children and adolescents ages 3-17 when the abuse or neglect has been substantiated. 

*Due to the population of the students served here, volunteers must go be over age 18 and trained as mandatory reporters- this process is an hour-long online training and brief quiz and that's it! We help you through the process.
