Bright Futures Atlanta was formed in 2002 in order to promote the spiritual, academic and physical growth of its youth participants and their families through year-round programs. After working with a local non-profit ministry for three years, Philip and Gail Ross (founders) decided to concentrate their efforts on the youth of the community. Since its inception, Bright Futures Atlanta has witnessed under-served youth of the community become self-sufficient, successful young people in college, military and full-time employment.
Bright Futures Atlanta operations are fielded by Executive Director Philip Ross, his wife Gail and a full-time director of development. Bright Futures Academy is staffed by a full-time principal and eight full-time teachers. Bright Futures Atlanta also includes a volunteer base from the local community, local churches and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
