“Since Georgia has the highest number of high school drop outs and third highest prostitution rates among teenage girls, GWRTW is designed to offer these girls the life skills needed to overcome teenage obstacles and establish a path to success,” Marjorie Harvey, President of The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation, says.
