Washington Farms - BSA 1116Head just outside of the city to Washington Farms for some festive fall fun. During the day, wander through their pumpkin patch to find just the right selection for carving or making pies.

Daytime explorers can try the Farms’ newest maze, inspired by the Peanuts gang. Afterwards dig into fan-favorite concessions, like caramel apples, BBQ and kettle corn or snuggle up with a hot chocolate and freshly made s’mores.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world” might be one of Mahatma Gandhi’s most famous quotes of all time. And one Atlanta-based nonprofit is helping high-school students do more than just remember those words, GivingPoint is helping young people put them into action.

Jesse Lavender - BSA 1116

Derek Smith launched the organization in 2009 after gathering a group of ChoicePoint employee volunteers to discover ways to empower young people to create an impact on the causes that mattered most to them. During their research, they found that a number of young people expressed interest in getting involved with social causes, but lacked the tools to do so.

Utilizing its online platform, GivingPoint connects organizations and volunteers, allows students to track volunteer hours and more. The organization’s reach extends beyond computer screens, too. The GivingPoint Institute offers a 10-month-long workshop that ultimately equips 15 to 25 local high-school students with the building blocks to create their own nonprofits.

Now, over 9,000 nonprofits, volunteers and donors seek out GivingPoint’s resources. Whether you’re a teacher, counselor, student or charitable organization, GivingPoint can help you be the change you wish to see in the world.
