Community Investment

The Grand Bahama Power company strongly believes in being good corporate citizens. Making investments in the community where we do business is an important part of our corporate philosophy.

We support projects that help make our communities enriched, healthy and prosperous places to live. We focus our contributions on youth, sports, education and cultural events.

Junior Achievement Bahamas

Grand Bahama Power Company actively supports Junior Achievement Bahamas. We sponsor a Junior Achievement group and our employees volunteer their time to mentor young people as Junior Achievement Advisors.

The mission of Junior Achievement Bahamas is to promote literacy and understanding of business and competitive free-enterprise among young Bahamians, the future leaders of The Bahamas.

Through a strong partnership between business and educational leaders, combined with the efforts of the Junior Achievement Board of Directors, success in developing a high quality economic education program is achieved.

The Beacon School

The Beacon School is an institution that caters to special needs students.
In an effort to continuously support and nurture their special needs students, the Beacon School offers a pottery program as a part of their therapy and work skills learning. The program began in 1998 and has become an integral part of the school’s daily activities.

Grand Bahama Power Company has sponsored the pottery program since its inception with the idea of supporting a long-term program geared at improving the quality of life for students at the Institution. The arrangement has since continued as its effectiveness with the students has proved a great benefit.
