Presencia is a neighborhood-based tutoring, mentoring and leadership development program in Atlanta's immigrant community. 
 
The kids in our Buford Highway neighborhood have limited resources at home as well as at school. Often their parents are struggling to work multiple jobs, learn English, and navigate life in a new country. 63.5% of the kids in our neighborhood live below the poverty line. That's 96% higher then all other neighborhoods in the USA. 

We provide homework help, reading practice, healthy meals, field trips, college prep, career development, service opportunities, performing arts classes and CREATE Presencia Studio days.

Presencia leaders become mentors for the younger kids, get sales and retail experience through our Presencia pop-up shops, and childhood development experience through our tutoring director paid staff positions.

Everything we do is centered around being present with people and having authentic relationships, because we believe presence matters!
