TGP is a community-based nonprofit that has become a national model in youth development and community mobilization around children, youth, and family issues. All TGP programs benefit the youth of Georgetown, and spring from an inclusive, collaborative community planning process that involves all sectors in assessing local youth and family services, identifying the gaps, and developing resources to fill the gaps. TGP is recognized locally, statewide and nationally as a leader in youth development. All programs are rooted in the Developmental Assets Model, which are 40 building blocks to healthy development that all children need. TGP programs include ASAP (After School Action Program) serving 500 middle school students with after school tutoring, technology, arts and drama and challenge activities, and other enrichment opportunities. ASAP Eagles at Night provides over 3,500 middle and high school youth each year with positive, intergenerational evening and weekend recreational, social, and service learning opportunities; Bridges To Growth Resource Room, serving 2,500 Georgetown families and childcare providers through parenting classes, toy lending library, parenting resources, childcare provider training, and services such as die cuts and laminating. Bridges has over 2,400 items in inventory; Youth Leadership programs serve around 200 students each year with leadership training and service learning opportunities; and the Community Resource Center Project, which seeks to fund creation of a multi-component family center offering couseling, parenting, and early childhood services.
