Macon-Bibb County Youth Leadership (GCAPS)

GCAPS Application Online:

Deadline: August 19, 2015

Check out our webpage: Check us out on Facebook: The Georgia Civic Awareness Program for Students (GCAPS) was developed by the Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) staff and county officials to address the need for increased civic involvement and awareness among our state's youth. The Bibb County Board of Commissioners established its program in 2012 with a $3,750 grant from ACCG. Youth gain knowledge about their local governments through hands-on learning experiences and witness firsthand the decision making process. The objective of GCAPS is simple: to educate young citizens about the importance of being actively conscious of their local government environment and the opportunities available in the public sector. GCAPS provides civic education by exposing high school students to the role that local government plays and by introducing them to the leaders who make local governments work. As a result of GCAPS, youth become engaged in their communities and become better informed citizens, they also learn valuable leadership skills and have the opportunity to create and implement civic awareness projects.
