Atlanta Gas Light employees are inextricably woven into the communities we are privileged to serve. We maintain local offices across our service territory, you might see our crews working in your neighborhood or find us at community events.
Opportunities for employees to volunteer for community outreach are available with the Atlanta chapter of Habitat for Humanity and the Junior Achievement of Atlanta, just to name a few. We also welcome opportunities to visit schools to educate students about careers in natural gas and natural gas safety. Additionally, the second week in May is Volunteer Week at Atlanta Gas Light, where employees participate in volunteer activities both big and small.
Watch and listen to Atlanta Gas Light President Bryan Batson talk about our commitment and service to the communities where our customers live and work.
Atlanta Women's Build
In 2011, Atlanta Gas Light began supporting the Atlanta Women’s Build, which are homes entirely built by women, for women. Habitat created Women’s Build events in 1991 to provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities. Women and children are the most likely segment of the population to be affected by poor living conditions. This year, Atlanta Gas Light sent a group of women to participate in the Habitat Women’s Build event on October 27. Two homes are under construction in the Hammond Park neighborhood of Atlanta for two single moms and their families.
We hosted a natural gas series for Energy Pathway teachers so they can teach Georgia high school students about the future of energy.
The second week in May is Volunteer Week at Atlanta Gas Light. This year, employees helped construct a home for what was our 28th Atlanta Habit for Humanity build. Atlanta Gas Light also donated a piece of property for a home to be built for a Habitat home to be built for a veteran. Learn More >>

The Carolyn Young Mentor Walk hosted about 300 students from Atlanta Public Schools and we were there to teach students about careers in STEM. We also had a great time at the Skills USA Career Expo teaching students what it takes to work in the natural gas industry.
