FirstEnergy has developed a new education program in partnership with Stark State College and The University of Akron. Through the program, instructors from both educational institutions will teach on-site at company facilities in the Akron area. Known as Educate to Elevate, the program is designed to assist FirstEnergy's local customer service employees in pursuing associate and bachelor's degrees by bringing the classes to them.
Educate to Elevate will help us develop a highly skilled workforce that is adaptable and ready for the future. In addition, the program empowers FirstEnergy employees to take charge of their career and professional development by enrolling in educational programs that could lead to advancement opportunities within the company.
