CONYERS, Ga. – For the third consecutive year, Rockdale County will provide civic education to youth going to school in the County through the Georgia Civic Awareness Program for Students (GCAPS).
Developed by the Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG), the program spotlights the ongoing need for increased civic awareness and engagement among Georgia’s youth. The program gives high school students direct access by educating them about the responsibilities of local government and the essential services it provides citizens. The County funds the program through an ACCG grant.
“We are excited to bring County government closer to another group of Rockdale youth,” Rockdale County GCAPS Program Manager Brittany Johnson said. “This course offers our high school students a vital opportunity to experience government beyond the classroom and showcases the importance of local officials and citizens working together.”
