For the kids

Posted on September 28, 2008


Every once in a while the team that I work with gets together to volunteer some time to help the community. Recently, our charity of choice has been Battelle for Kids, which focuses on improving childhood education. In support of this mission, Battelle hosts a number of conferences for teachers throughout the year. Each of these conferences requires lots of handouts, which is where we come in. Our main role has been assembling packets, packaging those packets into binders, and random assorted special tasks.

My main role is quality control, due to my extensive experience managing people and working as a trainer for Goodwill Industries in a previous decade. I help sort out who on the team is trainable or not trainable and assign tasks accordingly.

We managed to put together 700 binders in one night and in return walked away with some good karma and an assurance that our services would be requested again. Thanks Battelle, we really did have fun.
