Common Good Atlanta provides people who are incarcerated or formerly incarcerated with access to higher education by connecting Georgia’s colleges and professors with Georgia’s prison classrooms.
We believe that broad, democratic access to higher education for people affected by incarceration strengthens the common good of our communities.
CGA offers a range of college-level courses for our students and alumni. Students have the opportunity to shape their own path in terms of determining the types of classes they take and whether or not they want to gain college accreditation through their coursework. Our classes focus on the disciplines literature, writing, history, art, science, math and philosophy.
Every dollar raised directly supports Common Good Atlanta's mission and enables us to provide higher education to incarcerated men and women across Georgia.
For over a decade, Common Good Atlanta has thrived thanks to the generosity of our community.
Help us continue to do this important work by making a contribution today.
