Common Good Georgia Tech (CGGT) is a student-led organization that is dedicated to beginning, encouraging, and informing conversations about educational inequalities. They also invest in other Atlanta area and advocate for better educational resources for public schools and for those in prison and juvenile detention centers. CGGT’s formation was inspired by Common Good Atlanta, and when it was originally created their mission was to volunteer as tutors in juvenile detention centers, but over the course of 2020, their mission has expanded.
CGGT is seeking mentors to help with their current educational programs which include: working as a high school tutor, meeting with a student and aiding them in whatever subject area they are struggling in, and a partnership with Next Level Literacy. Next Level Literacy works to support men who are struggling with homelessness, addiction, or are reentering society after being incarcerated to sharpen their reading and writing skills to help them in their academic or professional pursuits.
