For many years, Georgia Power has provided support for educational initiatives throughout the state of Georgia. Through these initiatives, we emphasize the importance of math, science, electric safety and energy efficiency for our state's students. Georgia Power's commitment to education also focuses on building awareness around energy careers, which helps the company recruit a quality workforce of engineers, linemen and other highly skilled employees.
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 is helping to promote financial literacy among youth by joining with Junior Achievement (JA), Chick-fil-A and others to open JA's Chick-fil-A Foundation Discovery Center, a financial literacy and career readiness center in downtown Atlanta.
The center teaches Atlanta-area middle school students the basics of finance and business in a stimulating environment. It includes a Georgia Power storefront where students learn about budgeting and financial literacy.
