We are dedicated to improving and strengthening educational initiatives to help students across the state build brighter futures. That's why in 2017, through the Georgia Power Foundation, we contributed over $6 million to educational programming, schools, scholarships and educator training that focus on the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These efforts not only focus on advancing the student experience, but also providing educators with the tools necessary to motivate their students. Through these programs we hope to influence generations of students to think critically and to be excited about careers in science and technology – after all, it's the passionate, educated and driven students of today that become the bright minds of our state's workforce tomorrow.
Georgia Power and Dr. E have teamed up to deliver fun activities, games and puzzles that bring the exciting world of electricity to life for teachers, students and parents. In addition, teachers can schedule an in-class Learning Power lesson for their classroom. All Learning Power lessons meet Georgia Performance Standards and incorporate STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects.
Georgia Power’s Learning Power program provides customized curriculums and materials at no cost.
Georgia Power is helping to promote financial literacy among youth by joining with Junior Achievement (JA), Chick-fil-A to open JA's Chick-fil-A Foundation Discovery Centers, a financial literacy and career readiness center. The centers teach Atlanta-area middle school students the basics of finance and business. They include a Georgia Power storefront where students learn about budgeting and financial literacy.
If you have ever wondered where electricity comes from, the best way to learn is by touring a power plant. Georgia Power offers tours of fossil, hydro and nuclear power plants on a regular basis with requests made in advance. Typically, tours are conducted for students in the fifth grade and above, in groups of 30 or less.
Our Workforce Development programs grow awareness of the energy industry through educator camps and forums, educator externships and career events. Our goal is to cultivate a pool of talented, well-trained candidates for the hard-to-fill jobs in Georgia's energy industry.
