After careful consideration and to ensure we are complying with CDC to maintain social distancing and help control the spread of COVID-19, we made the responsible decision to cancel our Race for Safe Place scheduled for Saturday, March 14th. Due to the generosity of our sponsors, donors and runners, the Christian City Teen Board raised close to $9,000 that will benefit our Safe Place Runaway and Homeless Youth program.
Our 2020 Race for Safe Place Sponsors
Christian City’s Teen Board strives to educate young adults about Christian City’s mission and what our Children and Families programs do to help children who have not experienced a stable, supportive home environment. Our Teen Board offers unique opportunities for teenagers to contribute to the greater Atlanta community in a meaningful way, by learning how a non-profit works and participating in outreach efforts, while building resume credits and real-world experience.
Christian City’s Teen Board members are mature and passionate about helping others with demonstrated volunteer experiences. Character development is critical for the youth that are served by Christian City and our expectation is that a Teen Board member will have a good report from the people in their local community.
