Atlanta Business Radio Spotlights Non-Profits in Atlanta

 

November 12, 2012 --

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 12, 2012

On November 8, 2012, show host Lee Kantor broadcast a special edition of BusinessRadioX®'s Atlanta Business Radio to spotlight some of the non-profit agencies serving the Atlanta area. In the studio were Lisa Kennedy, Chief Development Officer for the Bobby Dodd Institute, along with Gary Marshall and Trevor Smith of JCI Atlanta.

Bobby Dodd Institute (BDI) is a non-profit organization that creates job opportunities for people with disabilities and disadvantages in the Atlanta community. According to Kennedy, "Our mission is to help people with permanent disabilities make transitions into the workforce and achieve economic self-sufficiency."

BDI does this by helping clients gain job skills, secure permanent jobs, and achieve financial self-sufficiency, what Kennedy refers to as "vocational rehabilitation." She goes on to explain that approximately 80-90% of BDI's clients have never worked before coming to BDI, so the vocational rehabilitation seeks to leverage the client's strengths, connect them with community employers or BDI's own social enterprises.


BDI has created its own industries specifically to help employ the people they help. Consequently, explained Kennedy, "80-90% of our revenue each year is generated through earned income."

Also joining the discussion on non-profits in Atlanta were Marshall and Smith from JCI Atlanta, better known as "The Atlanta Jaycees." According to Marshall, "JCI's mission is to positively impact the community by providing Atlanta young professionals opportunities for networking, community involvement and leadership advancement."

The Atlanta Jaycees is an organization of young professionals that provides a wide range of activities. Members can participate in community service, business networking, leadership development, social events and educational workshops. Membership is extended to individuals age 21- 40.

Explains Smith, "The Jaycees have played a vital role in Atlanta's growth and prosperity for over ninety years." Former Atlanta Jaycees members include former United States Senator Paul Coverdell and former Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson.

Young professionals can apply for membership and are then networked into the Atlanta community to grow as an individual and as a professional by attending and running various events.

To hear more about how Bobby Dodd Institute and JCI Atlanta serve the city, please listen to a re-broadcast of this show at Atlanta Business Radio.
