VTO Spotlight - Saroj Ghosh Helps Out the Muscular Dystrophy Assocation

By ATR International |   Thu, Dec 21, 2017 @ 09:00 AM

 

My time volunteering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) was an amazing experience that I would encourage all people to take part in. You are probably familiar with their annual Labor Day telethon, and they also sponsor Bike-A-Thons, Muscle Walks, and other fundraising activities. Money raised goes to research but also funds things for children challenged by MD.

My daughter has been working with the organization for a long time; she first started working with the MDA in high school and loves working at the MDA Summer Camp. I’d been looking for an opportunity to give back to the community and she convinced me to get involved with the camp. It’s been a part of her life for the past 11 years, so I decided to sign up.

Stop Hiring for Degrees and Start Hiring for Skills

By ATR International |   Wed, Aug 23, 2017 @ 06:43 AM

Recently, Inc.com wrote about the recruiting philosophy that LinkedIn’s CEO Jeff Weiner is advocating - skills not degrees. It’s a shift in thinking that can make a big difference. And with open tech positions outnumbering tech workers, it’s an idea that can help companies as they struggle to find qualified workers to fill the estimated 600,000+ technology positions currently open.

VTO Spotlight - Sara Delaney Spends Time With The Behailu Academy

By ATR International |   Fri, May 05, 2017 @ 06:57 AM

The Behailu Academy is an organization that is close to my heart. I started volunteering for them when I was introduced to the organization through a family friend that happened to be on the Board of Directors. I was really drawn to the Behailu Academy because of the direct impact they have made on so many children’s lives in Charlotte. The academy provides arts and recreational projects designed to help teens engage in their creative side, develop critical thinking skills and foster a sense of social responsibility. The results Behailu has brought to our local community have been staggering, leading to a 90% increased interest in the arts and an 88% increase in teenager self-confidence ratings.
