Peter Fonda at GCAPP Fundraiser
Attended GCAPP's annual fundraiser and had the pleasure of meeting actor Peter Fonda as he supported Jane Fonda, his sister and founder of GCAPP (Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential).
The mission of the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential is to improve the overall health and well-being of young people in Georgia to ensure a more powerful future for everyone. They reinforce the belief that all children are entitled to a safe and healthy adolescence characterized by hope, respect, and the opportunity for a productive future.
The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential was founded in 1995 as the then, Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention when Georgia had the highest teen birth rate in the nation. Today, that rate has declined by more than 60%. By working with school districts, health educators, and nearly 200 youth-serving organizations across the state, GCAPP reaches more than 40,000 young people a year with age-appropriate, medically accurate sex education. In 2012 GCAPP changed its name and expanded its mission to include healthy relationships, and physical activity and nutrition. At the core of their work, they empower young people with the information and motivation to improve their overall health and well-being so that they are better equipped to make healthy lifestyle choices – choices that tap into their power, potential, and hope for a successful future.

With a mission to improve the overall health and well-being of Georgia’s youth to ensure a brighter future for all, GCAPP has designed a clear and proven process to do this through our Formula for Change. This strategy describes the process by which we will most effectively reach our goals and measure our progress, including understanding the current environment we face, where we focus, what evidence-based methods we use, and how we track our results.
