GE Canada is a National Cornerstone partner with Actua, a national charitable organization dedicated to providing young Canadians with positive, hands on learning experiences in science, technology and engineering. Actua delivers summer camps, workshops, and community programs to youth across the country through a growing network of members many located in universities across Canada. The organization currently reaches 225,000 young people in 450 communities.
The Actua partnership provides many opportunities for GE employees to get involved. Our contributions fall into three areas: financial, volunteers and gifts-in-kind. Strategic advice, developing project ideas, participating in workshops/camps, fundraising, mentoring, and workplace tours are ways GE employees engage with Actua.
