The Millennium Gate Museum’s mission is to preserve and interpret Georgia history, art, culture and philanthropic heritage as well as highlight Georgia’s historical and aesthetic relevance to the United States and to the world.

From October 3, 2014 – February 1, 2015 the Millennium Gate Museum will host The Art of Diplomacy: Winston Churchill and the Pursuit of Painting. The exhibition will display more than 30 paintings by Winston Churchill, many of which have never before been publicly exhibited, and examine the notion that painting may have helped save Western civilization. Although a hobby, Winston Churchill wrote of the effect that it had on him personally and professionally. At the beginning in 1915, painting literally pulled Churchill out of his darkest political days and set him on his journey towards his finest hour. It was painting, he said, that helped him cope with the stress and strain of his political life, and allowed him to be productive as he developed his thinking about the rising danger of Hitler and Germany. In addition, Churchill found that the skills he learned from painting made his leadership more effective and he used his painter’s eye to achieve his political and diplomatic goals.

Community Development Internship

Posted by Admin On 8/11/2014 0 comments
Internships at the Dekalb Opportunity Zone (OZ) 

The DeKalb OZ’s mission is to empower Clarkston and Scottdale families through the areas of education, health, income, and civic engagement. It connects families to existing resources in a layered manner by supporting existent programs from its partners as well as connecting its partners to each other to enhance broader community opportunities. It primarily achieves this mission through a family coaching program and a community-driven mini-grant program.

The DeKalb OZ and its partners provides a wide variety of avenues through which college students of various academic backgrounds can be exposed to local underdeveloped communities and gain experience in public service, civic engagement, and real life applications of concepts taught in the classroom.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Location: Atlanta, GA (close to Decatur)

Time Commitment: 10-15 hours per week

Because of the community-based and human-centered nature of the work, students who are interested should preferably exhibit strong communication skills, considerable cultural intelligence, previous civic engagement experience, a desire to work in a non-profit environment, and great flexibility. Some duties and deliverables include:

 Attending regular meetings of the OZ’s partner organizations and subscribing to their newsfeeds to continuously stay in touch with key members of the community and network with new organizations.

 Attending regular meetings with OZ’s coordinator to discuss updates regarding interactions with the OZ’s partners, the community, and personal duties and goals.

 Developing materials to attract potential partners and funders, such as organizing tours or meetings.

 Attending weekly community events sponsored by partner organizations and the OZ to assess their effectiveness and impact on the community.

 Assisting in developing culturally appropriate recruitment and marketing strategies and materials, such as flyers, website, and social media, for OZ and its partners’ services to the community.

 Working with OZ staff (family coaches and mini-grant committee) to deliver the OZ’s main community empowerment strategies.

 Designing and implementing research studies to continuously improve the existing community empowerment strategies of the OZ and its partners.

 Collaborating with fellow interns on duties listed above.

 The opportunity to develop a project not necessarily within the scope of specific itemized responsibilities provided that it delivers value to the OZ.


Note that this internship requires proposing a project to complete during the semester.  Please email Dr. D'Unger right away if you are interested in this opportunity.

Interested applicants should submit their resume and cover letter to DeKalb Opportunity Zone (OZ) Coordinator Daniel Shorr at djshorr@dekalbcountyga.gov by September 15. In their cover letter, the applicant should indicate clearly his/her desired project area within the OZ. This is the intern's opportunity to develop a project not necessarily within the scope of specific itemized responsibilities, provided that it delivers value to the OZ (the last item on the job description attachment). It is essentially the opportunity of the intern to contribute something unique and personal towards the OZ's efforts in improving the community in the areas of education, health, income, and propensity for civic engagement.

An example of a recent project is delivering a survey to Clarkston residents to explore how they interact with their physical environment, particularly through littering.  The results of the project were meant to deliver value to the OZ by providing potential recommendations of an environment-related mini-grant proposal to the community.

Techwood Tutorial Project

Posted by Admin On 8/04/2014 0 comments
The Techwood Tutorial Project (TTP) is a volunteer program that pairs Georgia Tech students with children from local elementary schools for weekly one-on-one tutoring. TTP also plans a group outing for tutors and their tutees during the semester. These outings promote the friendship and mentoring that is a vital part of our program.

To be a TTP tutor, you must be able to dedicate at least one hour per week to your child for two semesters. Your commitment is very important; many of these children have had adults walk in and out of their lives, and we do not want to contribute to the cycle. In addition, as a TTP tutor you must come to at least one outing per semester as well as a short monthly meeting on campus. TTP tutors must have a desire to be a positive role model and to improve a child's life.
