Atlanta ContactPoint (ACP) is a Georgia 501©(3) nonprofit organization established in 2012 to engage children and adults through the power of play.
We believe in the positive relationships among physical activity, nutrition, self-esteem, and their collective impact on individual happiness, social and cultural integration, and the economy.
Our mission is to create community-based models to support, educate, and facilitate comprehensive education and wellness programs which encompass sports, fitness, arts, nutrition, social/environmental responsibility, while also combating the growing problems of inactivity, virtual play, and poor eating habits affecting youth and adults today.
Our vision is to provide the Atlanta in-town community with interdisciplinary indoor and outdoor initiatives and recreation space(s) where children and adults of all socio-economic backgrounds can come together to play and learn.
We function as catalyst for capacity building efforts, while also promoting the utilization of alternative means of transportation. There is an open generosity and care in all our actions, in the way we value people and cultures …to activate spaces and conversations.
To support our mission and with the endorsement of these organizations, Atlanta ContactPoint hosts PLAY DAYS throughout the year at local city parks and public venues. The PLAY DAY EXPERIENCE is a free, fun-filled day of sports, fitness, nutrition, art, educations and sustainable initiatives where local coaches and organizations come together to facilitate initiatives, drills and games for various sports.
All our communiry engagement Initiatives are perfectly in line with the Smart Cities global movement which encourages urban areas to focus not only on improving the infrastructure of a city, but on utilizing the social and intellectual capital of its citizens as well, balancing environmental responsibility, economic growth, and social needs.
