About Us

Who are we?

Georgia Center for Opportunity (GCO) is independent, non-partisan, and solutions-focused.

Our team is dedicated to creating opportunities for a quality education, fulfilling work, and a healthy family life for all Georgians.

To achieve our mission, we research ways to help remove barriers to opportunity in each of these pathways, promote our solutions to policymakers and the public, and help effective and innovative social enterprises deliver results in their communities.
