Together Georgia welcomes new member, Young Adult Guidance
YAGC was founded in 1986 with a primary
purpose to provide crisis intervention and emergency shelter for
Atlanta’s male runaway and homeless youth. The founding Board of
Directors met on January 14, 1984 at the A. D. Williams Recreation
Center under the leadership of Mr. Marion L. Simpson.
YAGC has evolved to provide a wide -range
of services for underprivileged youth and young adults. Over 12,000
clients have been helped throughout their uninterrupted
service history, with many achieving positive outcomes and
stability. Through all services and offerings, a holistic,
wrap-around approach has been adopted. Their overall goal is to help
clients achieve self-sufficiency and reduce their reliance on social
welfare. They strive to help young people achieve success and become
productive members of society.
Since 1986 YAGC has provided a
safe and learning environment for hundreds of homeless teenaged
boys. Over the years the YAGC has received numerous awards,
citations, plaques, certificates and other honors, from various
civil, community, schools, churches, governments, and private
businesses. On December 14, 2014 YAGC celebrated with friends
and allies their 28th anniversary.
Together Georgia is honored to welcome
Young Adult Guidance Center, Inc. to our 2015 membership.
