Embark Georgia

The Embark Georgia statewide network serves post-secondary professionals and institutions to ensure connectivity, share best practices, and provide information exchange among youth, community based stakeholders, and K-12 education.  

Thank you to everyone who participated in the College Connections for Student Success Conference last month, and welcome to all of our new subscribers.  The event was a huge success and we hope to build on the momentum in the upcoming months.  To that end we have a list of highlighted ideas gathered from the conference that we would like to share with you regarding how Embark can help to serve your institutions and organizations moving forward.  

  1. Streamlining communication between K-12 and Higher Education
  2. Providing consistent and up to date data on how many youth are participating in programs across the state supporting former foster and homeless youth
  3. Provide technical assistance to campuses/departments/organizations who want to be involved with this movement across the state
  4. Maintaining a list of institutions who have programming available for youth coming from this background
  5. Let us know any additional ways Embark can help to serve you.

A few pieces of information to share:

  1. Melissa Carter will be giving a lecture at UGA on March 26, 2014 entitled, "The State of Child Welfare in Georgia: Understanding the Opportunities and Challenges."
  2. Information "Cheat Sheet" on ETV's that might be helpful to some our your students can be found here.  
3. Our new print logo is to the left.  We will be ordering stickers and window clings in the very near future and hope that many of you will request them to be displayed in your offices across the state.
The State of Child Welfare in Georgia: Understanding the Opportunities and Challenges
