C5 Georgia’s mission is to inspire high-potential youth from risk-filled environments to pursue personal success, to prepare them for leadership roles in college, work, and community, and to motivate them to become role models for others.

All C5 Georgia leaders are encouraged to be Character-driven, Community-focused, Challenge-ready, College-bound, and Committed to a better future.



C5 Georgia is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that is part of a nationwide system of sites that includes C5 New England, C5 LA and C5 Texas. Our legacy is rooted in the good works of former Coca-Cola Enterprises CEO John Alm and was launched with an initial $35 million investment from The Coca-Cola Company and its bottlers under a name that belied the organization’s dedication to unique, hands-on leadership experiences for under-served teens: Camp Coca-Cola.

Today, we are C5 Georgia, dedicated to creating Character-driven, Community-focused, Challenge-ready, College-bound teens Committed to a better future. Our five-year program of immersive, intensive student involvement is unique and recognized as an exemplary model. In 2010, we celebrated the graduation of the very first students to complete the full C5 Georgia program.
