Georgia’s engines are revving up for a clean energy shift, and Goodwill of North Georgia is stepping on the gas to ensure job seekers don’t get left behind.
Partnering with the global professional services firm Accenture, they’re launching a groundbreaking workforce training program to plug hundreds into the state’s surging electric vehicle (EV) industry.
This isn’t just a quick pit stop – it’s a four-week intensive designed to equip participants with the skills to become EV charger maintenance technicians.
From installation to troubleshooting, trainees will be immersed in the intricacies of keeping the Peach State’s EV infrastructure humming. But the journey doesn’t end there. Graduates will be directly placed with participating employers committed to paying living wages, ensuring a smooth transition from classroom to career.
This partnership isn’t just about green jobs – it’s about building a brighter future for Georgia. With multi-billion dollar EV factories and a burgeoning network of suppliers and battery makers, the demand for skilled technicians is soaring.
Goodwill and Accenture are filling that gap, opening doors for individuals seeking stable, well-paying employment in a booming sector.
The initiative also carries a vital environmental charge. As America invests heavily in electrifying its transportation system, Georgia is poised to play a leading role. By ensuring a skilled workforce ready to maintain and expand the state’s EV infrastructure, Goodwill and Accenture are paving the way for a cleaner, more sustainable tomorrow.
This program is just the first spark in a larger vision. Goodwill aims to expand it to 20 cities across the state over the next seven years, potentially training thousands for clean energy careers. With Goodwill at the wheel and Accenture providing the fuel, Georgia’s job seekers are ready to plug into a brighter, electrified future.
