This summer, you can join other students in a fun, exciting program that will make a real difference in your life…
Odyssey hosts various events throughout the year, and particularly during our summer program.
The Odyssey Brunch is Odyssey’s primary fundraising event of the year, and is attended by more than 500 Atlantans who share a commitment to educational access for all of Atlanta’s youth.
Odyssey is an educational non-profit organization partnering with the Atlanta Public Schools to serve students in grades 1-12 from economically disadvantaged communities. Odyssey’s academic enrichment program focuses on students with unmet potential, preparing them for high school graduation and supporting them on their path to college.
Odyssey is a comprehensive academic summer program for Atlanta Public School students in grades 1 through 12. Targeting students who fall in the middle of their class, Odyssey provides inspiration in a nurturing and exciting educational environment. Odyssey’s engaging atmosphere encourages students to enhance their skills both inside and outside the classroom. Odyssey students find themselves challenged, motivated, and prepared to meet—and exceed—their academic goals in the coming school year. After spending their summers with us, Odyssey graduates continue to make a difference in their communities and to find value in education.
