We research solutions to society’s most pressing challenges.
WE REMOVE BARRIERS TO OPPORTUNITY
Georgia Center for Opportunity is an independent, non-partisan think tank dedicated to increasing opportunity and improving the quality of life for all Georgians. We research solutions to society’s most pressing challenges, promote those solutions to policymakers and the public, and help innovative social enterprises deliver results on the ground.
The primary pathways to opportunity – strong families, safe communities, quality schools, stable employment, and good health – which historically gave children a chance to succeed, regardless of social and economic background, have experienced a rapid decline. We study and understand the obstacles along these pathways and work to break through the barriers that keep Georgia children and families from thriving.
