Creating awareness on the Internet is a high priority for G-CAPP to help get the message out as well as aid in fundraising efforts
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 22, 2008
Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (G-CAPP) is pleased to announce the launch of it's new G-CAPP (http://www.gcapp.org) website.
The most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports a 3 percent increase in teenage birth in Georgia. This suggests that the decade of progress in Georgia that produced a 27 percent drop in teen pregnancies has stagnated and/or reversed. Georgia now ranks 7th highest teen birth rate and 2nd highest repeat teen birth rate in the nation.
"Creating awareness on the Internet is a high priority for G-CAPP to help get the message out as well as aid in fundraising efforts", states Jane Fonda, Chairman and Founder of G-CAPP. "The new website provides the opportunity to engage with G-CAPP through multiple channels including: e-newsletter, social networking sites, online giving, events, and volunteer opportunities. There are resources for youth, parents and adolescent service providers along with Research, Fast Facts about Teen Pregnancy, and County Data. Cutting-edge programs that promote the development of healthy children and families such as the Community-Based Doula Project, Second Chance Homes Network, and the Carrera Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program are also featured on the G-CAPP website. We are very pleased with new look and functionality of the website and look forward to getting more people aware and involved".
"We chose Drupal as the CMS engine for G-CAPP due to the power and flexibility of the platform", stated Fred Tanzella, CEO of Glick Interactive, the developers of the G-CAPP website. "The active community as well as our expertise in Drupal Module development made it an excellent choice to be able to help G-CAPP get to market quickly with a new look for G-CAPP, while providing an intuitive interface for users to navigate the site and experience all that G-CAPP has to offer. To help in the social networking aspect of the site, we also created MySpace and Facebook pages along with a Facebook Cause to reach the younger Internet user demographic and allow those users to donate to G-CAPP on websites they frequent. The G-CAPP website is hosted at Colocube in their Atlanta data center using Managed Hosting for Drupal."
The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (G-CAPP) is a non-profit organization founded by Jane Fonda in 1995.
