At the Chick-fil-A Foundation we believe motivating our youth and making a difference in our community starts with inspiring leaders. Each of our employees has the opportunity to help resolve issues impacting our youth and education system. They can help strengthen our community by serving as a volunteer, mentor or teacher:
- Volunteer – Open doors to new opportunities by serving as a sports team volunteer during day camps.
- Teach – Improve financial literacy among metro Atlanta youth by serving as an after-hours instructor at Junior Achievement’s Chick-fil-A Foundation Discovery Center.
- Mentor – Inspire future leaders by serving as a mentor to Booker T. Washington High School students.
In fact, through Chick-fil-A’s Summit – a volunteer fair for our employees – more than 1,100 Home Office team members committed to volunteer to help organizations that combat issues facing youth, such as education, hunger and homelessness.
More than 70 employee teams have activated to lend a hand to underserved communities across metro Atlanta. As the Foundation continues to grow, our Operators nationwide and Home Office employees will play a bigger role in helping our vision come to life.
We also empower our employee volunteers through a leadership speaker series. We identify and invite external leaders in the areas of youth, education and community development to speak to Chick-fil-A employees. Their inspiring stories motivate Chick-fil-A staff members to continue volunteering and be the change in our communities.
We aspire to build a positive legacy, develop leaders for the future and inspire youth. Through our employees, the Foundation is helping create a lasting impact on the lives of youth in metro Atlanta, and eventually all communities Chick-fil-A serves.
