It’s the week after Thanksgiving. It’s also been almost a year since we announced TrainUp Gives Back – our sponsorship with New Horizons of North Texas. With almost a full year’s worth of my own contributions toward our day-to-day initiatives to reflect upon, the thought of the impact our company has had on our community is astounding. Every single course registration has helped this amazing charity benefit local at-risk youth. I am so thankful that we’ve been empowered to give back, directly from the registrations of our customers.
If you’ve noticed these little banners appearing on TrainUp.com over the past year, you might have an idea of what our Give Back initiative has been all about:
“When you register for training with TrainUp.com, you are also supporting local education.” This is what “supporting local education” means to us:
- Over 250 hours of mentoring to each child each year
- Reading support to move kids from below grade level to reading on grade level.
- Tutoring to move kids from being “off-track” to “on-track” to high school graduation.
- A safe and loving environment for kids to go after school and in the summer
- After school and summer meals
- New experiences through trips and enrichment activities
It’s a sponsorship that fits perfectly. And here’s why:
Everything we do at TrainUp.com remains aligned to our vision: Empowering Growth & Shaping the Future of Learning.
We fulfill this vision in our day-to-day operations through a variety of corporate education and training solutions. We are the web’s largest career training marketplace, listing training courses in over 150 categories including business skills, leadership, information technology, finance, and human resources. Training sessions are available live (in classroom or virtual), self-paced online via eLearning, or customized right at your office. Therefore, the opportunities to give back are endless.
We’re a small team with big hearts, and your registrations are making an even bigger impact on the next generation!
