2023-2025 Strategic Plan

In 2022, Horizons Atlanta proudly reflects upon the challenges we have overcome in the past three years. There has been a fundamental shift in the way education is delivered as a result of a pandemic and social unrest. As the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic swept across the country, we worked tirelessly to keep up with the educational needs of our students, transitioning our programs from in-person to online and eventually back to in-person again. While we take the time to celebrate our resilience and accomplishments, it is fitting that we also set forth a thoughtful plan to continue our growth and improvement in a post-pandemic world. Our organization’s 2023 - 2025 strategic plan is a way of affirming both our vision and our continued commitment to closing the opportunity gap through high-quality academics in an engaging and enriching summer learning program.

We have a lot to be proud of. In the summer of 2022, we served 1,262 scholars across 10 sites. We helped develop 311 staff members and provided 253 hours of swim instruction, 229 hours of social emotional learning, 67 field trips, and 65,624 meals. Following the proven academic achievement model established by Horizons National, our Atlanta team continues to serve as an innovator and thought leader for our overarching organization, forging a regional approach that allows for expansion while maintaining the high quality of our educational programs.

We remain focused on our fundamental belief that “every child in Atlanta, regardless of background, should have the same chance at making a positive impact on his or her community.” By building each young scholar’s literacy, mathematics, swimming, and other life skills, our program aims to eliminate the critical barriers to success that he or she may face and clear the path to a world of new possibilities.

Our work continues, and this strategic plan – informed by and crafted alongside our valued stakeholders – will guide our activities over the next three years so that we can sustainably deliver high-quality academics and support to the children and families in need.
