Introducing #WebinarWednesday

You don't want to miss #WebinarWednesday - our weekly webinar series where we discover, explore and share pressing topics facing our adolescents. This virtual opportunity is open to parents, youth-serving professionals and advocates, mentors, and, of course, young people themselves. Like so many organizations during this time, GCAPP has pivoted to digital delivery of services and is working continually to provide tools, skills, and a wide range of opportunities to engage in healthy, medically-accurate dialogue — critical dialogue and tools that are needed to help young people prepare for social challenges in life. Please visit our virtual opportunities web page to find more events and trainings for specific audiences.

 

 

Important Messages to Our Education and Community Partners

The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential (GCAPP) would like to express our gratitude for all you do for Georgia’s students each day. We also thank you for all you are doing to assist students in navigating the “new normal” of virtual education while helping them remain on a successful path through such uncertain times.
 
GCAPP remains available to support you as we all strive to ensure a healthy lifestyle is within reach for every young person in Georgia. While we will not conduct in-person trainings and meetings as we practice the CDC recommendation for physical distancing, we will continue to engage through virtual measures.  
 
Here are a few ways we are providing critical resources and medically accurate information for youth, parents, and our school-based partners: https://conta.cc/34gOnvx

Home with the Kids? We Got You!

We hope you and your family are finding your "new normal" during this global health pandemic. Change, fear and uncertainty can be challenging to manage, especially right now, but we are here to help you put the "social" in social distancing. Remember, we're all in this together as we continue to stay home and follow guidelines to protect our families and the community. Here are a few tips to help enjoy the extra time at home together.

 

Ways to Discuss the Coronavirus as a Family

The novel Coronavirus, which causes a disease known as COVID-19, continues to infect a growing number of people in the United States, including many right here in Georgia. 
 
This public health concern raises a lot of questions, especially for young people, as schools continue to close or utilize digital learning to minimize risk. This issue of Power News is dedicated to sharing age-appropriate facts for young people to help prevent anxiety and misinformation. 

 

What's on GCAPP's 2020 Agenda?

Check out our recent interview on Facebook for a sneak peek of what to expect from GCAPP in 2020, our 25th anniversary year. GCAPP's President & CEO Ronald McNeill and Dr. Shelley Francis, vice president of programs, sat down for a wide-ranging interview on the “Top Docs” show of the Medical Association of Georgia.
 
GCAPP’s long history of improving the health and wellness of young people in Georgia provides a solid foundation for us to expand across our five focus areas using our new, innovative, collaborative service delivery system - Formula For Change.
