GCAPP Overview

 

The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential (GCAPP) is a statewide adolescent health organization that partners with communities to help ensure young people are equipped with the knowledge, information, and motivation they need to make healthy choices — choices that help them tap into and maximize their potential. Through our five focus areas in Youth Empowerment, Parent Engagement, Comprehensive Sex Ed, Teen Pregnancy Prevention, and Physical Activity & Nutrition, GCAPP reaches over 60,000 young people a year, providing them with the information, skills, and motivation they need to make healthy choices…choices that won’t derail one’s future.
