To increase levels of child support payment, the Georgia Fatherhood Program provided job placement, training in life skills, and occupational training to noncustodial fathers ordered to pay child support.

Fathers received life skills training and job placement and could participate in short-term training programs, such as truck driving training, and long-term training, such as heating and air-conditioning repair. All participants were enrolled in life skills training and job placement, but individuals could choose what types of additional program offerings to attend. Eligible individuals lacked high school educational credentials, were unemployed or underemployed, or were referred by their child support agent. The Georgia Fatherhood Program was conducted at each of Georgia’s 36 technical colleges, as well as a limited number of contracting service providers.
