Testimonials

Why GFPE?
"Thank you very much to Georgia Foundation for Public Education and to Georgia Power Foundation for collaborating on this project. The coaching you provided to make us aware of this innovative grant was invaluable. The collaboration between the two foundations is significant as it allows focus on these “last mile” projects, such as GA CATT 2.0, that leverage millions of dollars of long-established local and state investment to create new structures that provide the FINAL connection to help our students become successfully employed in living wage careers locally. You were the right team at the right time to help us develop this pipeline that can last indefinitely and is already proving to be successful. I hope you can show this 'model' to other business and education partnerships. It is the innovation that our students need to better secure their futures. P.S.—Some of the students who began the program without employer sponsors are now being hired as apprentices.”

Grant Success
“Thank you so much for the grant that helped our program to be successful. The opportunity presented itself for us to visit another district that has developed a very successful career readiness program. Our district will be working towards a goal to develop a similar program here for our students. We greatly look forward to next year and how we can expand our program to reach even more students. Again, thank you for your generous support.”

Thank you for your help. It made a difference for us!”
