Schools

Great Promise Partnership pairs local school systems with public and  private partners to help students in danger of not graduating stay on  track by giving them relevant real-world work experience while helping  them to complete their education. At-risk students who show promise  receive mentoring, on-the-job training, life skills and community  support—in fact, GPP is the most comprehensive, action-oriented program  for at-risk youth available to Georgia school systems.

To deliver the benefits of real-world skills and positive adults to  underserved youth while lowering the dropout rate, schools can partner  with GPP to establish a GPP WorkPrep and GPP Workplace.
