This year's event is themed Real Life Direction, which ties into the organization's mission to provide support beyond the classroom for Bright Futures students as they graduate from the school and enter into adulthood.
BFA is a nonprofit organization that offers programs year-round and serves students in sixth through 12th grade. This same group of students attends the afterschool program and summer camp.
Located in west Atlanta, the organization focuses on providing educational, social and spiritual opportunities for the underserved youth of the city.

For the past 18 years, Philip and Gail Ross have lived in the community and built deep relationships with youth and their families in West Atlanta, which includes Bankhead, Vine City, the Bluff and surrounding areas. They have developed a first-hand understanding of the challenges faced by the youth and have developed highly effective programming to help them overcome the barriers they face to achieve a successful life filled with meaning and purpose.
