Hillgrove, Osborne, Kennesaw Mountain and Pope high school students who attend the transition academies are hosting their second annual “Service Social” at 10:30 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 86 N. Marietta Parkway in Marietta.
Lisa Leiter, a Hillgrove teacher, said this year’s social is aimed at teaching the young people about volunteering in the community.
Deal will be talking about volunteering with the students and hearing about their program and how they work in the community.
“We will be participating in a couple of different services projects as a group,” Leiter said. “Our purpose of the social is two-fold. We will be volunteering as well as encouraging our students to advocate for themselves.”
A transition academy serves students ages 19-22 who are intellectually disabled. The programs at each high school helps students who have met their academic requirements learn life skills.
