Service to the Community

Project M.A.L.E. believes that it is important to give back to our local community. We strive to teach our young men to develop a spirit of service to populations that need it most. Each year Project M.A.L.E. sets a goal to complete 400 hours of community service in the Metropolitan Atlanta area. Research shows that performing community service encourages one to be more responsible and more invested in their community. Performing community service often strengthens communities by providing key support to families, improves school and supports youth needs.

Additionally performing community service has been associated with academic gains and increases in self-efficacy. Those who continuously perform service to their communities often develop strong civic responsibility and in turn become active and educated voters.

Project M.A.L.E. has performed many hours of community service by participating in programs such as Hands on Atlanta and Do Something Saturday. Project M.A.L.E. also feeds the homeless and supports other local non-profits in their efforts.
