Monday March 28, 2022 - Orange Duffel Bag Initiative (ODBI) 9th Annual Charity Golf Event with Coach Bill Curry,  Indian Hills Country Club. This best ball scramble brings together golfers from across GA in support of ODBI's work with high school and college students, who are homeless, in foster care, or experiencing high poverty, to help them stay on track with their education success.

How will your participation and support make a difference? 

Your support helps raise funds needed to purchase laptops and scholarships our ODBI graduates earn upon successful completion of our comprehensive coaching programs -- always at no cost to students.

During the COVID pandemic, ODBI successfully moved our programs from the classroom to a virtual delivery model! High school and college students, who are homeless, in foster care, or experiencing high poverty, continue to receive much needed coaching and support for their education and life success!

What do ODBI graduates have to say about Team Orange and their experience?

“The ODB class taught me how to move forward in my life and not turn back for no one. I’m now a straight-A student and have more determination to keep going on.” M 

 “It was a great life experience that changed me. I’m taking school more seriously.” C 

“Since I graduated ODB, I am a lot more at one with myself and my emotions and I am also a lot more okay with the past I’ve had and open to share it with others.” R  

“ODB gave me a sense of hope.” B 

Educators agree, ODBI makes a difference!

"We have a challenge: graduate kids from high school and motivate them to complete higher education. ODBI lights that spark in our kids and works to keep the flame burning.” Sonia Davis, Homeless Liaison, Clayton County Public Schools

"ODBI was great support for self-efficacy, college and career readiness. 100% of our students participating improved attendance, behavior and performance. Our students' soft skills were enhanced as well as written and oral communication. ODBI is an awesome program to extend our student’s resume for success in life!" E. J. Mobley Ph.D., Principal, West End Academy

ODBI is recipient of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Service Award from Emory University for exemplifying the precepts of leadership and social justice.

Thanks in advance, and see you March 28, 2022!
