Okay, no one really refers to Atlanta as "Hotlanta" anymore. So what can we call it since ACE Atlanta has presented to about 27,000 students in only a year in The Peach State? Maybe we should call it a comeback, because we are smoking!
ACE Atlanta is happy to welcome Amber Nave, Educator, to the team. When Amber discovered she had a unique passion and knack for public speaking she made a personal goal to reach as many students as possible and motivate them to overcome obstacles. Amber faciliated workshops at the 2011 Boys and Girls Club conference in Orlando, FL and is excited to help students achieve success!
To contact ACE's Atlanta office, contact Amber at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 404.348.0574. To book an assembly at your school, click here.

What's the most inspiring student project you've worked on in Atlanta?
From an E-waste drive at Riverwood International Charter School to a sustainable garden at KIPP Strive Academy--it's really hard to pinpoint the most inspiring project! But if you just insist, South Cobb High School Action Team rocked this year! They worked through setbacks in the beginning and finished the year triumphantly as the only 5-star action team in Georgia.

- Droughts and Floods, say what?: Unusual weather due to global climate change greatly impacts the Peach State. Georgia has experienced more devastating floods in the last 4 years than ever before and 50% of the state experienced drought in 2007. In 2000, 2007 and 2009 weather conditions contributed to a substantial fall in agricultural production. Within the last few years, Georgia incurred over $1 billion dollars in crop damages due to atypical weather occurrences. I bet you could think of a few places that money could have gone, right?
- Futuristically speaking: That's a glimpse of the cloudy Georgia forecast if we do nothing. But here is where Georgia can shine! In 2008, Forbes ranked Georgia third in the nation for potential biomass energy as measured by the amount of biomass available in the state. In addition, the Georgia Center of Innovation for Energy reported that, "the state currently has over $2 billion worth of active renewable energy-related projects and is projected to drive nearly $5 billion dollars into the state’s economy over the next 10 years."
