Working for the betterment
of Bartow County

living our mission

Learn some of the ways that the New Frontier is unique.

feeding the community

Each year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving we hold our annual Feed the Community Dinner, where we serve nearly 2,000 individuals.

In addition we have on sight: health screenings, social services, salon/barber services, and free clothing giveaway.

Awards Ceremony

Our Awards Ceremony is put on annually to recognize the outstanding contributions of African-American students in both Academics and Athletics.

In addition, the we award annual scholarships to students attending college.

voter education

We actively provide local citizens with basic information about participating in elections. Voter education is often provided by the state itself, however we feel it imperative that more education be given in a non-partisan way.

Our focus is on how to vote rather than who to vote for.

Education Initiatives

Our approach is an effort to focus on the long-term development and success of all children in Bartow County.

We help educators, families, and community members educate the whole child through: SAT Prep, Weekend Tutoring, and Mentoring.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
