Truancy Intervention Georgia has grown from a targeted project into an expansive initiative, driven by the imperative to effectively combat chronic absenteeism and truancy across the state. With a history spanning over 30 years, our journey is characterized by an unwavering commitment to understanding and addressing the root causes of chronic absenteeism and truancy. This dedication has not only enhanced the educational experiences of countless students but also brought significant benefits to their families, positively impacting communities throughout Georgia.

Our strategy involves collaboration with partners, deploying targeted interventions across various sectors throughout Georgia – including courts, schools, and communities. These interventions, astutely designed, tackle pivotal issues such as food insecurity, mental health challenges, housing insecurity, parental underemployment, period poverty, and more which are fundamental contributors to truancy and chronic absenteeism.

Our approach adopts a comprehensive perspective, acknowledging that the factors contributing to truancy and chronic absenteeism transcend the educational sphere and are deeply rooted in the broader challenges faced in the everyday lives of children. Our initiatives focus on alleviating these key issues and fostering an environment that supports and nurtures children’s well-being. This holistic strategy is crucial in effectively addressing truancy and absenteeism rates, as it involves a combination of resources, education, and statewide connectivity.

Our work significantly impacts the lives of children and the communities in which they live. By improving school engagement and tackling the reasons behind truancy, we enhance literacy rates, positively impact juvenile delinquency rates, and the lifetime earning potential for underserved youth.

We encourage the involvement of legal experts, educators, parents, community leaders, and all those who are passionate about the future of our youth. Your support and participation in Truancy Intervention Georgia can make a real difference in transforming lives and fostering the potential of our next generation.

At Truancy Intervention Georgia, we’re more than just an organization; we’re a movement dedicated to empowering Georgia’s youth for a better tomorrow. Be a part of our mission.
