DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

A group of successful Southwest Georgia Natives will be back to give back to their hometown.

Authors, Ministers and veterans will be holding this year's Giving Back Empowerment Summit in Douglas. They'll provide free workshops with several experts for anyone looking for career advice. 

Organizers say it's important to reach out to the community where their personal success began. 

"We go out and we become successful as we see it in whatever areas and it is very important to give back and to give individuals resources, opportunities just as it was afforded to us," said Tijuana Vickers, summit organizer. 

The free bi-annual event will be held July 12th on the campus of South Georgia State College.
