NGF seeks to empower new leaders of tomorrow through literacy achievement, teen leadership, and enrichment and educational programs that will make a positive impact on their lives.

NGF Teens Program

This program provides high school and college students an opportunity to give back to the community by volunteering as tutors and mentors to children in the SmarterMe® programs.  It also gives them access to an enrichment program specifically designed for teens.  Teen volunteers are supervised by our adult mentors, many of whom are professional educators also volunteering their time.  Teens are given progressively increasing amounts of responsibility to develop their leadership and organizational skills.  The teens have an open forum for any ideas that may help SmarterMe®, including suggestions to improve the program, raise funds, and spread awareness. For volunteer information please contact us at or call 678-807-9643.
