Statewide Network

Embark Georgia is a statewide network that connects resources across Georgia.  The goal of the network is to provide connectivity among people and access to information.  Georgia has over 50 postsecondary educational institutions and while not every campus has programming devoted to supporting youth who have experienced foster care or homelessness, Georgia is the first to have a Designated Point of Contact on every campus.  If you are looking for information about a specific campus, this is the place to find it.  If you can’t find specific information, you will find contact information for a person at every University System of Georgia and Technical College System of Georgia campus who can.
