GEEARS is focused on leading and convening powerful early childhood initiatives that create public awareness while sustaining positive change.

Some of the initiatives we are currently leading are:

First 2000 Days

There are only 2,000 days between the time a baby is born and when he or she will begin kindergarten. GEEARS is leading a statewide public awareness campaign to spread the message about the importance of a child’s first 2,000 days of life. We are continuously seeking new partners, champions, and supporters. #GAFirst2KDays

Leadership Academy for Better Brains (LABB)

The Leadership Academy for Better Brains (LABB) serves as an umbrella initiative for convening emerging leaders, providing training and support, and continuing our public education efforts. The initiatives that fall under the LABB offer innovative opportunities for GEEARS to convene and engage community members through collaborative methods to make our vision a reality.
