The Georgia Public-Private Partnership For Teen Pregnancy Prevention (P3)
Achieving greater results together than we can independently.
Teen childbearing costs Georgia $395 million dollars a year.
Teen pregnancy is the number one reason girls drop out of school, and its costs are both academic and economic. P3 is focused on the success of young people: Ensuring a future in which young people gain the knowledge and skills they need to delay early parenthood, complete their education, and enter adulthood healthy and ready for college, career and life.
P3 unites state public agencies, non-profits, and foundations from multiple arenas and serves as a catalyst for collaboration, alignment, systems change, and progress toward reducing teen pregnancy in Georgia. Through this new collective impact model, P3 partners are strengthening major state systems and building the infrastructure to implement quality, evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs and practices in Georgia to help our young people succeed in life. This collaborative model focuses on wise investments that create scale and public health impact. It requires commitment and collaboration across agencies. In addition, a statewide investment of federal, state and private dollars are needed to implement the plan and make an impact on the future of our most vital resources—our children!
A SPECIAL THANK YOU - Thank you to the United Way of Greater Atlanta and the Kendeda Fund for their support of P3. We also thank Michele Ozumba, former GCAPP President and CEO, and Brian Castrucci, former Maternal Child Health Director of the Georgia Department of Public Health, for sparking the collective impact conversation in Georgia. Their vision and enthusiasm brought public and private stakeholders together to consider a new paradigm for Georgia. Lastly, we thank Ellen Lynch of Ellen Lynch Consulting for her extraordinary facilitation skills in leading us through the planning process.
