We don’t believe that our young people need to sit and wait for the leadership baton to be passed to them; it’s time for them to start running and take it! HEY! was created to cultivate, encourage and mentor young people to identify and meet the needs of their ever changing world. With this in mind, HEY! has created two primary initiatives to address those needs, Sport For Good S.T.E.A.M. Academy and
the HEY! Let's Read! Book Festival for Children of Color. In addition, we are adamant about meeting the needs of the young people serve. Our current needs based initiative is focused on the ATL Water Boyz.
In 2019, HEY! also introduced their collaboration with Built For This to provide Mental Health First Aid training for those adult leaders who serve young people in schools, churches and communities. To learn more visit: Built For This.
HEY! is one of the premier youth leadership development organizations in the Metro Atlanta area and is working hard to ensure that young people are equipped in leading themselves. HEY! challenges youth to stake claim, prepare, and take action ensuring a positive, successful, and impactful future.
