Odyssey is sincerely grateful to Kalka & Baer, LLC, for its support
of their organization through the sponsorship of their Fall Party "A
Night Out for Odyssey,” which was held on October 26, 2017, and
the Annual Odyssey Brunch will be held on February 5, 2018. With the help
from sponsors such as Kalka & Baer, LLC, Odyssey is able to provide
underprivileged students unique experiences and opportunities on their
journey toward higher education.
What is Odyssey’s Mission?
Odyssey's mission is to expand the ambitions of Atlanta students, to
empower them towards a successful college journey, and to help them pursue
a fulfilling career. Working in partnership with The Westminster Schools
and the Atlanta Public Schools, Odyssey provides summer academic enrichment
through a thematic Project Based Learning curriculum to students who might
not otherwise have access to summer learning opportunities.
To date, all students involved with Odyssey from Atlanta Public Schools
have achieved a 100% high school graduation rate, which represents around
120 schools within the APS system. The summer program consists of six
weeks of educational experiences focusing on science, technology, art,
engineering, and math.

How Can You Get Involved?
The next event for Odyssey is the
Annual Brunch in February 2018 which is open to the public and tickets can be
purchased online. Additionally, Odyssey is always in need of
volunteers, who have a passion for helping these young students through various programs.
They are always looking for high school student volunteers, office support,
special event volunteers, readers, and college mentors.
