Focusing on three areas - teen pregnancy prevention, physical activity and nutrition, and healthy relationships - GCAPP’s mission is to improve the overall health and wellbeing of young people in Georgia to ensure a more powerful future for us all. GCAAP works to give young people the knowledge, skills and motivation they need to make healthy lifestyle choices. GCAPP believes if young people make it through adolescence unencumbered by teen pregnancy, physically healthy, and involved in healthy relationships, they will be primed to unleash their full power and potential and have a much better shot at succeeding.
