Path To Shine® is a mentoring and tutoring program for elementary-school children in Georgia. Our purpose is to provide the academic and social support to encourage children to thrive in school and build self-confidence to achieve their dreams. PTS's success stems from our principles to maintain a ratio of no more than one Mentor to two students, have a flexible structure that adapts to each local community, and seek collaboration with other organizations.
Our director, Deacon Lesley-Ann Drake, began working full-time with Path To Shine in January 2011. Ordained a permanent deacon in the Episcopal Church in 2011, Lesley-Ann is currently assigned to St. Patrick's in Dunwoody. MORE >
