Win-Win with Great Promise Partnership
Great Promise Partnership (GPP) is an initiative of the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) in the Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education Department (CTAE). GPP is the work-based learning placement for students in danger of not graduating, providing an educational opportunity that allows students to receive on-the-job training and life skills. Not only will this program help these students gain transferable skills while earning a much-needed paycheck, but it will also help with developing a workforce pipeline for your school nutrition program.
