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.
For employers who’d like to participate fully in improving the local community and Georgia as a whole, GPP Workplace is an innovative way to partner with the education community and other local entities. From mentoring and life skills that help at-risk students stay in school, to on-the-job training that helps them find jobs in their local communities after graduation, GPP delivers long-term results for students, their communities, and the state. GPP also benefits your organization with entry-level part-time employees, which can also lead to well-trained full-time employees.
