WISE Georgia

Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential

The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential (GCAPP), the WISE Georgia lead agency, is a statewide nonprofit organization working with young people, giving them the knowledge, skills and motivation they need to make good, healthy choices. Georgia law requires boards of education to include sex education and HIV/AIDS as part of comprehensive health education, however many districts in the state are not in compliance with the law. GCAPP’s WISE objective is to engage school district and community partners to build the sexuality and health education infrastructure of schools and school districts to institutionalize sex education in Georgia.  GCAPP supports school district partners in implementing sex education as an integral component of school-based comprehensive health education offerings.
