WINGS is Ready to Fly for 2015-16

It's been a BUSY summer at WINGS in Atlanta!

We've purchased new equipment, interacted with our generous funders, attended meetings and conferences to further hone our skills, updated our curriculum, AND recruited a stellar team of more than 50 WINGSLeaders.


Our dedicated team of AmeriCorps members spent 40 hours in an intense learning environment to prepare to serve 576 WINGS kids this year - our largest cohort yet! WINGSLeaders learned WINGS lingo, values, behavior modification techniques, how to identify teachable moments, and most importantly, memorized the WINGS Creed.


Alongside our WINGSLeader Leadership Academy, we ran a parallel kids camp for our new team members to gain hands-on experience with our awesome WINGS kids. Especially for our first-timers, they enjoyed employing their newly-learned techniques in real-time.
