The next atlSERVE June 21-25 Location: All Saints' Atlanta Cost: $150
atlSERVE came into existence through a partnership between All Saints' Atlanta and Holy Innocents' in 2012. In 2014, the program expanded through a partnership with the Offices of the Bishop to become a Diocesan Youth Week. The focus of atlSERVE is on learning what it means to serve and how service transforms our lives as disciples of Christ. Throughout the week, youth will serve the Atlanta and her metros, hear from speakers, share their experience in small groups, and leave the week knowing they can bring the love they experience back home into their communities. Once open, registration is available on the calendar page.You can find an event flyer on our event resources page.
This week is for all middle and high school youth. Youth live in the youth space of All Saints' Atlanta for the week. It is a state-of-the-art youth space that has a basketball court, movie screen, pool tables, ping pong tables, kitchen, showers, and ample sleeping space. The space is secured at night by on site security.
Parishes are not required to send chaperones. We staff the week with experienced Youth Workers that receive special training on how to facilitate a service week. They all receive background checks and are Safeguard certified. Parishes may send chaperones if needed for parish participation.
