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.

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.
