One of the efforts led by the Fanning Institute to support youth in higher education is Embark — statewide and campus-wide support networks for foster, homeless, and disconnected youth.
Embark Georgia Statewide Network
Embark Georgia's vision is that youth who have experienced foster care or homelessness have ample academic, financial, social, and emotional supports to access and complete a post-secondary education.
Mission: 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.
Embark UGA will increase the opportunities for UGA students who have experienced foster care or homelessness by providing supports that promote success and well-being beyond an education.
