Our Work in Elbert County, GA

Updated: Aug 7, 2022

We cannot continue to empower our youth if the environment they live in is not inspiring as well.

We all have a responsibility to keep our community clean and beautiful and that’s why we love learning about the work that Keep Elbert County Beautiful is doing in the community and we’re so grateful for amazing citizens like Pam.

We’re excited to join forces with @keepelbertcountybeautiful to help protect the beauty of our county.

It’s imperative that when talking about the advantages of mentoring relationships, we’re able to categorise the influence it can have on different factors in our lives.

Generally speaking, mentoring has a significant impact on the lives of our youth today and should be celebrated everywhere in Elbert County.

Grateful for the opportunity to attend the City Council Meeting this evening in Elberton. As we get to hear our local’s stories and connect with them, we had the chance to chat with Honorable Firefighter Calvin Tate, who has been serving the community for over 30 years and will be retiring this month.

Firefighter Calvin is so passionate about mentoring youth and will be meeting with us soon to see what we can do together. He also mentioned to us that he’s been teaching young men basic skills that will serve them in their personal lives. We can’t wait to share more with you…

Let's thank our firefighters and their families for their service to our country.

And let's recommit to empowering our next generation for the future of our community—there's still so much work to be done to improve our work and perfect our union.

Thanks to our local leaders here in Elbert County for their genuine support for our work here in Elbert County through our organization ARISE Project For Humanity.

When a community doesn’t have access to mentoring, children are among the most impacted. They are more likely to get drawn into dangerous routes, miss the opportunity to become something, be trafficked by the bad guys, and lose time they could be spending with their mentors.

But thanks to #arise’s community of supporters, our team, and locals like you, mentoring is changing everything for youth around the county and around the world. Thank you for supporting big dreams and brighter futures!

"I think part of being a good neighbor and being part of the community is recognizing that, as business owners, we have a responsibility to the young people of the neighborhood. What ARISE is doing with their mentoring program is the key and I’m all in” —Elizabeth Tyler, Owner of @bodyplexelberton

As part of our ongoing commitment to Elberton’s youth, we invite our locals to come join us to help empower our youth to change their mindset, create their life, and impact their community through mentoring.

When it comes to empowering youth in our community, we all have our own role to play, and that’s why we were invited by the The Elberton Star, a local newspaper here in Elberton to talk about our youth mentoring program and our vision for the youth in Elbert county.

Thanks to Rose and the entire team at @theelbertonstar for being a force for good in our community.

We can’t wait for you to learn more about our story and why access to mentoring is critical for our youth today

Elberton Star Newspaper

Building relationships is key to mentoring youth today. As some of you know that my organization @ariseprojects started mentoring youth in communities here in Elbert County, GA. It’s been quite a journey to see how much impact we can make in the lives of these youth as we’re building stronger relationships with them. These wonderful young people truly are going places. Each individual has their own unique amazing talents and I can’t wait to share more with you on what we’ve been working on.

One of the main reasons why we moved to Georgia was to serve the Lord, to use our talents, gifts and skills to serve our community and it has become so clear to us that this is exactly where we are supposed to be.

"I’m still trying so hard to remember all of their names but every time I step in the building , they all yell “Mr. Will” and it melts my heart.

I would like to thank my wonderful wife @sharlaksintyl for supporting, inspiring and motivating daily, my team member here @empoweruslia for making this happen in the county, my board members all around the Globe for believing in our vision, and to the locals here for trusting us with their time to help us expand our program in the community." - Williamson Sintyl, CEO - Founder

We believe that access to mentoring is critical for Elberton’s youth and we’re excited to work alongside local organizations and partners to ensure that happens!

After our mentoring session in Elberton, our Chief Operating Office, Lia Black met with Mrs. Betty from the Blackwell community to chat about ways to get more youth involved in our program and to start training more young adults to become mentors for these youth.

We invite the community and local families to get involved also to help us expand our program throughout the county.

We believe that access to mentoring is critical for Elberton’s youth and we’re excited to work alongside local organizations and partners to ensure that happens!

You cannot do all the good the world needs but the world needs all the good you can do!

Thanks to the locals here in Elbert County for supporting our work.
