The Mission
The mission of the Xcelling Youth Zone (XYZ) is to illuminate the minds of young people, thereby causing them to excel beyond mediocrity into successful adulthood.

Program Summary
Improving the lives of our youth through effective intervention is an opportunity XYZ takes seriously. XYZ is a non-profit organization with a mission to empower youth in South Fulton County and the surrounding areas to succeed. XYZ provides a high quality school-year enrichment program and summer camp with a focus on academics, arts, technology, sports and life skills. Additionally, XYZ fosters preparing youth for life through our mentoring program, scholarships and, in upcoming years, through internships and entrepreneurial opportunities.

XYZ takes a positive approach to providing services for our youth. In this environment youth are not seen as problems to be solved, but as resources to be developed. The five zone areas (Academic Zone, Art Zone, Sports Zone, Technology Zone and Life Zone) are designed to improve academic achievement, social and life skills.

Our youth deserve an opportunity to discover their hidden talents and expand their learning beyond the classroom during non-school hours. XYZ will ensure that our youth and their families have access to a well-structured, high quality program that will enable our youth to become capable and effective members of a global society.
