Fighting poverty

UGA will hire 130 local high school students this summer and fall as part of a countywide effort to combat poverty. The students will work in offices or laboratories, depending on their interests, and will get hands-on experience as well as an opportunity to learn soft skills, such as punctuality and attentiveness. The university also will, through its human resources division, help agencies that serve adults with physical and mental disabilities find jobs on campus that match their skill sets. Athens launched its antipoverty initiative in 2006 to address its 31 percent poverty rate. UGA is Athens largest employer. For more on OneAthens, go to
