Our PURPOSE

The purpose of the Athens Wellbeing Project (AWP) is to assist our community leaders and institutions by providing a comprehensive snapshot of our community's unique needs and assets here in Athens-Clarke County. For starters, the AWP will be used to inform and empower Local School Governance Teams (LSGTs) with neighborhood-level survey data. These data will be used to develop strategic plans for school attendance zones throughout our community's transition to a charter district system.

Our assessment will provide information in what we call "domain" areas of EDUCATION, HEALTH, HOUSING, COMMUNITY SAFETY, and CIVIC VITALITY. The AWP is pioneering an unprecedented collaboration of community leaders, using a data collection approach that is representative of our community.
