Parents & Guardians of Youth

Enrolling a child in AWOL programs can be a rewarding experience for both a child and the parent. At AWOL we are committed to working hand and hand with our parents to help your young person reach his or her greatest potential. To get your child enrolled into our programs the first step is to fill out the AWOL Online Enrollment Application below. Once your information has been submitted we will be able to contact you as to when the next program is about to start. AWOL programs are project based learning which means that we don’t function as a drop in center. Instead, we accept students at three different time of year during the fall, spring and summer. A general timeline of when our programs start can also be found below.

AWOL uses the power of volunteer muscle everyday to get the job done. Our program truly believes in the old African Proverb that “it takes a village to raise a child”, and here in Savannah and abroad it’s good folks like you that make up the AWOL Village. All Parents of currently enrolled youth must volunteer for no less than 10 hours per year. Other community volunteers must be able to pass a background check depending on the type of volunteer service you will be providing. Background checks are $20 and can be taken at the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department located downtown at 201 Habersham St. Once you have completed your background check, please have a copy mailed to AWOL, Inc. at P.O. Box 15846, Savannah, GA 31416 or it can be faxed to 912-525-3160.
