WELCOME TO the
SMILE UP charitable foundation!
SmileUp! is a 501c3 non-profit based in Cherokee County, Georgia, whose mission is to get kids helping kids through volunteerism. Our focus is on recruiting volunteers from all walks of life, in order to present a diverse group of SERVICE LEADERS who know how to work for and along side those who look and live differently than they do.
HOW SMILEUP! WORKS
Volunteers sign up on our site to be added to our database. When volunteer opportunities arise, an e-mail callout is sent for young people to register or ignore until the next callout.
BECOME AN AMBASSADOR
Once a SmileUp! volunteer gains twelve volunteer hours, they become a SmileUp! AMBASSADOR!
Our mission leads us to offering help to children from all backgrounds and situations but we make a point to focus our efforts towards these four causes.
Foster Care & Child Abuse
There are over 440,000 children in foster care in the U.S. and a child enters foster care every two minutes.
Youth Mental Health & Purposeful Living
Suicide is the third leading cause of death in youth ages 10-24.
Everyday in the United States, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer.
Youth Hunger & Homelessness
2.5 million children in the U.S. experience homelessness in a year. 1 in 6 children live with hunger.
