“This year’s support by Georgia Power, and other public and private organizations, sends an especially powerful statement: quality early education is essential, even in a virtual environment,” said Dr. Erica Fener Sitkoff, Executive Director of Voices for Georgia’s Children. “For seven years, Georgia Power has played a vital role in raising awareness in the importance of a solid start for the state’s youngest learners.”
Georgia Power is in classrooms across the state all year long, not just during Pre-K Week. In fact, Georgia Power’s Learning Power program has reached more than 790,000 plus students in grades Pre-K through High School since its inception in 2011. Through the program, education coordinators visit Georgia schools to present hands-on, STEM-related energy and energy efficiency lessons that reinforce Georgia Standards of Excellence and make students, educators and parents aware of energy and efficiency opportunities and careers. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Learning Power is offering virtual lessons.
