Jobs for Georgia Graduates

This fall, GGS and the Division of Aging Services are collaborating with the Georgia Department of Labor to educate selected high school students about careers in aging. Click here for more information and a list of participating areas.  

We are looking for help for the following projects: 

  • Regional Career Presenters (October - May): Make one 50-minute presentation to a group of 10-25 participating students in your region. GGS and DAS will provide a speaker's kit with a PowerPoint, speaker's tips, and handout masters. We will provide locations.
  • Regional Community Service Hosts (October - May): Host a JGG student for three community service hours. GGS and DAS will provide a service-learning kit with learning outcomes, orientation guidelines, sample activity descriptions, and post-service reflection questions.
  • Service-Learning Development Team Members (August - September): Help to develop our service-learning kit by collaborating with teammates to draft learning outcomes, orientation guidelines, three sample activity descriptions, and post-service reflection questions.
  • Video Scout (Flexible): Help us identify a talented professional or student videographer who can provide free services for the career video project.

Visibility Action Planning Session

GGS is moving forward with our strategic plan. Our next action planning session will be on Visibility.
Our Visibility Goal is to implement an identity strategy that positions the organization as an inclusive, diverse, multidisciplinary membership. This session has not been scheduled but if you would be interested in getting more information and possible participation, please email Amanda James.  

The 2017 Georgia Senior Hunger Summit is the next step to stamping out senior hunger in Georgia. Sponsored by the Georgia Department of Human Services Division of Aging Services, the 2016 Summit kick-started conversations to develop a comprehensive plan to address senior hunger.

This year, the Senior Hunger Summit, held on Sept. 28 and Sept. 29, will bring together a diverse group of experts and policymakers to heighten awareness of senior hunger in Georgia, unearth issues accompanying the problem and continue work on the first-ever state plan to fight senior hunger.
