We are proud to serve as the title sponsor for the Corners Outreach annual gala and 10-year anniversary celebration, Evening With a Purpose, held on Thursday, October 20th at the Atlanta Athletic Club. Corners Outreach seeks to change lives and our communities by equipping underserved students and their families with both educational and economic opportunities they would not have access to otherwise.
The pandemic and the rise in inflation has had a devastating impact on low-income students and their families. As an example, the Department of Education’s first look at test score trends since the pandemic began, reveals the worst drop in fourth grade reading and math scores in decades; a crucial indicator of the future trajectory of both educational and economic progress in our country. To make matters worse, the decline in test scores was disproportionately dramatic among low-income students.
We are raising funds to hire more teachers to provide individual tutoring for students and to provide their parents with career and job training resources. Please visit www.cornersoutreach.org to register for the event, donate or to learn more about our cause.
