Grants Available to Help Georgia Schools Implement Career-readiness Activities

In Georgia, economic stability and workforce conditions are on the upswing for business owners and job seekers alike.

That’s why the Georgia Foundation for Public Education is partnering with with Georgia Power and the Georgia Department of Education Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education Division, to offer schools mini-grants that can be used for student career-readiness activities.

Schools interested in the mini-grants can apply for up to $5,000 in upfront funding to help students prepare for post-secondary and career planning.

“Our foremost goal and responsibility is to prepare students for their next step after high school,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “Partnerships like this one with the Georgia Power Company are a perfect example of the education/industry partnerships that will help us equip every student with the tools they need to be successful. I cannot thank Georgia Power and the Georgia Foundation for Public Education enough for investing in Georgia’s public schools and students.”

Georgia CTAE has worked hand in hand with business and industry partners to teach students about the kinds of skills needed in today’s workforce.
