Resources for teens
- The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential has a GPower App. The App can be easily installed for free on any smart phone and will give young people turn by turn directions to the nearest clinic. It has great information about contraception, STDs, and attending a clinic, as well. Young people can rate their experience and can arrange for a live chat, as needed.
