Inspiring Education Through Exploration

At Beyond the Front Porch, we believe in free monthly educational field trips for students K-12. Our goals are to keep our students motivated, to complement classroom learning, and to positively engage our families.​

What We Do

Beyond the Front Porch enables students who mostly come from under-served households to increase their potential for success by introducing them to places of educational value that will inspire their desire for life-long learning with the support of their families and loved ones.

Who We Serve

We bring educational experiences (including transportation and lunch) to underserved students who may not have the resources to participate in educational learning experiences beyond their current surroundings.

Where We Serve

We provide educational day trips in Douglasville (leaving Arbor Place Mall) and the Tri-Cities area (East Point, College Park, Hapeville, leaving from Greenbriar Mall) on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, respectively.

Thank you to everyone who voted for us as Best Non Profit in the Douglas County Sentinel’s Readers Choice Survey! We are very humbled and love our place in the community and the lives that we have touched.
