"Through our partnership, we have connected Convergys with innovative volunteer organizations that are pioneering new ways to grow the number of volunteers and the impact of the work they do," said Jonathas Barreto, Senior Director, Global at Points of Light. "We believe that business will be a game-changer in the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals and this initiative of Convergys's is an example of the active role that companies are playing to support the post-2015 development agenda."In the Philippines, Hands On Manila, an affiliate of Points of Light that helps mobilize volunteers to work on sustainable development projects, created an exclusive volunteer opportunity for Convergys employees. Volunteers help students obtain a graduation certificate through the Alternative Learning System, a Philippine government program that provides basic education options for those who have dropped out or cannot access formal education in schools. In El Salvador and Nicaragua, Convergys is also partnering with another Points of Light affiliate, Glasswing International. Volunteers from two sites are actively participating in "English for Tomorrow," a program in which employee volunteers use tutoring sessions to become positive role models for students, while helping to reinforce English and customer service skills. The goal of each of these volunteer efforts is to provide learning and employment opportunities that can significantly exceed the minimum wage and starts a career path towards a better future.
