Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential

The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential (GCAPP) has been working statewide in support of advancing school-based sex education since 2009.  They have worked in a variety of school contexts including larger urban school settings, rural schools and charter schools.  GCAPP has leveraged it network of contacts to identify schools with readiness and capacity and works with districts to identify their goals and objectives relative to sex education.  They have also devised a robust training practice to support schools wherever they may be in the process of achieving their goals.  Their work has resulted in sustained progress over time; districts have been able to institutionalize sex education through policy and practice.  GCAPP has also led the WISE Initiative in creating a peer mentor program to support educators in a large school district that has been replicated in other WISE sites.
