JEA employee Ambassadors spend thousands of hours each year in the community educating our customers about conservation, safety and the various products and services JEA offers to customers; including solutions to help track their usage, pay their bill and how best to communicate with JEA.
Our Ambassadors engage with customers and the community throughout the year in various ways:
- At community events such as the annual Home & Patio Shows, the Southern Women’s Show, the Black Expo, World of Nations, Earth Day events and many church, school and smaller community events
- Through speaking invitations to community churches, schools, civic groups, home owners associations and others that want to hear about utility conservation, utility safety, environmental topics and other topics important or relative to the group or audience
- Through tours given of our energy generation and waste water facilities. Several of our energy and water plants are available for group tours of adults and middle-school and older youths
- As instructors of financial literacy information to adults and youth in partnership with area nonprofits such as United Way’s Real Sense and Junior Achievement. Our Ambassador instructors also teach JEA’s electric and water safety Power Pals program to area first and second graders through select elementary school partnerships
If you or your group would like to invite the JEA Ambassadors to participate in your event, speak at your club or organization or guide you on a tour of one of our facilities, please click on the appropriate link below and read the guidelines then complete and return the Request Form.
Spotlighting our JEA Ambassadors
“Don’t be shy. Give it a try!”
That’s what Office Support Associate Ruth-Ann often tells her JEA colleagues when she mentions her duties as a JEA Ambassador. Ruth-Ann has marched behind a JEA bucket truck in the city’s Veterans Day Parade, helped take over a school for the day with Junior Achievement volunteers and taught classes in electric safety to kindergartners as part of the JEA Power Pals program.
She says every audience she encounters as a JEA Ambassador is unique.
“I especially have an amazing time with the children that I present to. Even with the short time we spend together it isn’t easy having to say goodbye,” Ruth-Ann said.
Ruth-Ann’s enthusiasm for the JEA Ambassador program is contagious. She’s often heard at JEA's Commonwealth Service Center where she works, urging her colleagues to get out and share their knowledge about JEA and its programs with the community.
“Simply put, the ambassador program gives you an opportunity to shine, to showcase and to share your JEA knowledge,” she said. “And that’s something I’m passionate about.”
