The Georgia High School High Tech program is successful due to our partners collaborating with us. Our partners provide tours, presentations to students, attend transition activities and provide funding to support of our organization and mission. When it comes to making sure our students are engaged and graduating from high school, our partners play a huge role.
- We thank the Jackson EMC Foundation and members of the Jackson EMC for their generous contribution of 10K to support one Manufacturing Institute to be scheduled for Fall 2021 or Spring 2022. The Institute will offer 12-15 High School High Tech juniors/seniors a 3-day intensive training to be held at a technical college in the area. Students will receive training to earn 3 industry-approved Department of Labor certifications in OSHA 10, Lean Six Sigma White Belt, and Hands Only CPR/AED. Trainers for each of the three modules are certified by Georgia Tech. Students can include these certifications on their resumes to further their pursuit of careers in manufacturing industries. A hands-on project is included in the training. This Manufacturing Institute will serve High School High Students in Jackson and Barrow Counties as well as from Banks, Clarke, Franklin, Gwinnett, Hall, Lumpkin, Madison, and Oglethorpe counties which are within the Jackson EMC service area.
