Why GPP?

In Georgia, one in three high school students will not graduate—often due to factors outside of their control, such as poverty or inadequate housing.  Currently 1.3 million Georgians over the age of 18 don’t have high school diplomas and are not adequately prepared for the workplace.

This has a tremendous impact on the economic well-being of Georgia’s youth and communities alike.  Bringing together public and private partnerships, mentors and positive workplaces, GPP is giving at-risk students a reason to stay in school and succeed.
