Community Events

As a part of the initiatives of Welcoming Atlanta, we host a variety of events that cater to our mission of creating an inclusive community and supporting the growing foreign-born population. These events are great opportunities to support the efforts of Welcoming Atlanta while also becoming more connected to your community. You can participate in events that are dedicated to celebrating Atlanta’s diversity and increasing community dialogue and help you become more engaged in your community and bridge the gap between new and native Atlantans. Some of our seasonal events include:

Welcoming Week/Month (Fall)

Atlanta Soccer Festival (Fall)

Citizenship Workshops/Information Sessions (monthly)

MyCity Academy Sessions (Fall, Winter, Spring)

Financial Literacy Workshops

Business Development Workshops

Read below about some of our interns’ experiences with Welcoming Atlanta!  

“Getting the opportunity to intern with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs will always be one of the greatest experiences I have received. I am fortunate to have been able to work at an office where I was surrounded by individuals so passionate and devoted to not only their personal work but their community as well. The great lessons and wisdom they have shared will remain with me for the rest of my journey. Through this experience, I gained insight on what it really means to be a leader dedicated to a vision and cause that will forge the path for a greater future. ” – Roshaine Elliot, summer 2016 & 2017 intern
