First Serve Opportunities serve as an on-ramp for people to connect with missions at NAPC.
Connect with one of North Avenue’s most vibrant and transformational ministries! Join NAPC and the Georgia Tech Chinese Friendship Association to welcome more than 300 people coming directly from Mainland China to Georgia Tech. At least 90 volunteers are needed to make the welcoming a success! There are several different ways you can help:
AIRPORT PICKUP (AUGUST 1-18)
Help transport students from the airport. You can be a part of their first impression of America and extend their first warm welcome! Sign up here.
HOST STUDENTS IN YOUR HOME (AUGUST 1-18)
We have invited students to stay up to five nights in a home as they wait for their permanent housing to become available. This special opportunity also gives students a unique experience in an American home and allows you to build a relationship. Sign up here.
PROVIDE A MEAL
Provide a meal or dish for 30 people and/or help serve the meal and clean up. Come and hang out with the new students and be available to assist them on campus. (August 9-17 at WCF — 724 Techwood Drive NW)
HELP AT THE WELCOME DINNER
Host a table at the Welcome Dinner or help with decorations, gift bags, registration, or transportation (August 18, 5-9:30 PM at NAPC Gym)
DONATE OR DELIVER
Donate or help deliver donated beds or furniture to student apartments. Provide truck delivery for luggage. (August 18, 9-11 AM)
JOIN THE PRAYER TEAM
Pray for the welcoming logistics, the students and the host families, airport pickup volunteers, and the Welcoming Dinner.
