Inspired by VTLO’s GRIT values of Growth, Respect, Integrity and Teamwork, Employee Volunteering focuses on encouraging volunteerism among team members, and supports the UN Sustainable Development Goal, No Poverty, which is ultimately affected by all volunteer efforts.
In support of Employee Volunteering, VTLO has set a volunteer goal of 150 hours for the next two years, making a commitment to donate to World Vision for every hour volunteered by VTLO team members, up to 150 hours. VTLO team members may volunteer at any nonprofit they choose in support of this goal. Their volunteer efforts will help provide clean water access for 30 people in Rwanda under World Vision’s clean water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) initiative by VTLO’s 30th anniversary in 2020.
Additionally, each year on Giving Tuesday, the team member with the highest number of volunteer hours will be named the VTLO Volunteer of the Year. In recognition of the honor, VTLO will make a monetary donation to a nonprofit organization of the Volunteer’s choice.
