In 2016, the emerging Georgia Mentoring Partnership launched the first ever landscape analysis of mentoring and youth development organizations in Georgia—the Youth Mentoring in Georgia Report—including "Seven Bright Spots and Seven Red Flags for the Field."
Released February 28, 2017, the 2017 Report represents a statewide collaboration that reveals the landscape, trends, and needs of mentoring and youth development programs in Georgia. The report is an important tool that enables the field of mentoring and youth development to establish benchmarks to:
- Better meet the needs of Georgia youth;
- Strengthen the case for investment of public and private resources;
- Raise public awareness on behalf of the field; and
- Guide strategic decision-making.
