Our Purpose

WE ARE DIFFERENT!

We seek to preserve the history of well-deserved honorees whose passion and commitment to their vocation has significantly contributed to the communities in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area.  We also seek to educate underserved youth so they can follow in the footsteps of their heroes by showing them how to create generational wealth that is poured back into their communities.

OUR MOTTO

Honor those who have laid a good path, and follow it to the end!

 

Our Mission

To recognize and educate!

We feel it’s important to celebrate the contributions of well-deserved celebrities who have richly given back to their communities with a striking commemorative Atlanta star embedded in the sidewalks of various landmark locations in the Atlanta area. We also believe it is our responsibility to encourage and teach challenged young people how to be the heroes in their communities through educational programs, mentor-ships inspirational events, and services.

RECOGNITION

Each star will bear the recipient’s name who has enriched the quality of life in the Atlanta Metropolitan area.

Engraved in the center of each star is an emblem that represents the inductee’s vocation category.

 

 

 

Each honoree will also receive a commemorative take-home plaque. For posthumous honorees, the take-home plaque will be given to a close relative or duly appointed representative.

A soft and hard copy publication outlining the contributions and history of each inductee will be made available to the public and press.

At a predetermined time, the Atlanta Walk of Fame will hold induction ceremonies open to the public.

YOUTH TRAINING PROGRAM

The Atlanta Walk of Fame strongly believes that our future is better built on a past we honor, which is why we do both. We respect and cherish the accomplishments of those that came before us, and we endeavor to train our future heroes to hold to the mission of service.

 

 

Knowing the effect a celebrity or public figure can have on a young person is key to our mission. Our educational programs will do more than show our youth how to manage finances and create generational wealth. It will help them set solid moral values that lift humanity.

Our youth programs will foster a desire to give back in the same way our honorees have chosen to serve their communities.

We will further encourage our future heroes to believe in themselves and develop the ability to be more than famous; be worthy of your newfound status.

 

In addition, the young people in our program will have an opportunity to meet at least one of our inductees and learn why they chose to support their communities—a real one-on-one with their hero to be further inspired by the celebrity they admire.

Educational Program Goals:

  • To inspire each young person to believe in themselves and leave a mark on the world with their generous contributions and moral fortitude
  • To show our youth how to manage finances at an early age 
  • Enhance their skill-sets that cultivate integrity and trustworthiness
  • Encourage their desire to support others 
  • Show them how to identify and constructively respond to the needs of their communities
