All Grown Up Sweet Sixteen! #AGUSweet16

All Grown Up, Inc. started working with 30 At-risk girls in 1999. Since its inception, AGU has been the champion for middle and high school girls in Clayton County. Over the course of our 15 year existence, 100% of our girls graduated from high school without getting pregnant, despite the county’s high teen pregnancy rate (116th out of 159 Georgia counties). AGU programs have served as a protective buffer against teen pregnancy, cyclical poverty, substance abuse, gang involvement, and the many other risk factors faced by young females residing in Clayton County. It is our continued mission to offer the young ladies of Clayton County options for their future. Several AGU alumni members are now Program Directors, Leaders and Board members for the organization. AGU will continue to work in the community to be a positive source of guidance and information to our future leaders.

Testimonials

I became a member of AGU at age 11 and stayed in the program until I was a high school graduate. During my time with the organization, I held many positions as President, Vice President, and Secretary. AGU was more than an after-school activity for me and taught me valuable skills that I still use today. All the AGU mentors showed me what it's like to give your all selflessly, and I know they will always be there for me.

Shayla S

I joined AGU in 11th grade and absolutely loved it. Within the high school program, we participated in workshops, events, community service and fun outings. I learned how to interact with others, etiquette, budgeting and how to understand others paradigms. This program gave me a space to be heard and understood and allowed me to express myself. I made plenty of lifelong friends and create family-like bonds to last a lifetime. I am so grateful to have been able to come back and serve as an intern to help continue the amazing work the directors are constantly been doing.
