In addition to providing Resume Writing and Career Development services, Tandem believes in expanding opportunity for the disadvantaged so that more and more people can live the most fulfilling lives possible. For instance, we like to donate services to those facing profound struggles, and we like to showcase/support humanitarian organizations working to make a difference around the world. Last month, I wrote a bit about Tandem Empowers and this year's Charity of Choice, Mercy Corps. In addition to being an all around fantastic organization, Mercy Corps does a lot to inspire people to take action in the interest of creating healthy, forward-thinking communities around the world.
Soon, I will be in New York City, and I am going to carve out some time to visit Mercy Corps' Action Center. They describe it as:
A first-of-its-kind, interactive public space that educates and empowers visitors to tackle the global challenges posed by hunger and poverty.
The Action Center challenges visitors to be a part of the solution by committing to giving back via an activity (for a week, an hour, even a minute). Based on the timeframe that works best for you, the center links you with ideas for action. I am eager to have a look and will be reporting back on how my visit unfolds.
