I am Atlanta

The Atlanta Mayor has launched a community rejuvenation plan focused around volunteers. As a news report says:

The city’s plan will focus on mobilizing volunteerism in three key areas — developing youth, neighborhood revitalization and building a philanthropic base of supporters.

The move follows that of Detroit (as reported by this blog here) and is supported by the Cities of Service grant-giving coalition which aims to find:

new and innovative ways to harness the power of volunteers to help solve pressing local challenges

Apparently the website for the campaign will be www.iamatlanta.org although if its anything like the equivalent Detroit campaign it may be a long time coming. Thankfully the Detroit website is now looking pretty good.
