Learn, connect, and serve through a virtual “Day of Service” for Social Impact and Employee Engagement Leaders

Design for Impact is a special 6-hour virtual “day of service” program created just for you.

We know many of you organize volunteer opportunities for employees at your companies, but you may not get to participate as a volunteer yourself. So we’ve created this special free opportunity for you to experience Team4Tech’s new Design for Impact virtual volunteer program, network with your peers at other companies, and make an impact with one of our nonprofit partners.

We hope by participating in the Design for Impact program, you will feel a reinvigorated sense of purpose as you make an impact and experience a new way to help your company engage employees. At the same time, you’ll learn new frameworks for problem-solving and grow your personal network.

Join us to help girls stay in school with Learning Links Foundation, India

Learning Links Foundation in India is focused on transforming learning by harnessing knowledge, triggering innovation, and leveraging technology to deliver evidence-based change. Learning Links has impacted over 16.4 million students by training over 2 million teachers. Over 80% of the teachers trained by Learning Links reported improvement in their instructional skills which resulted in better student retention and lower dropout rates.

130M girls were out of school globally before the pandemic and UNESCO estimates an additional 11M girls may never return. In India, only 40% of girls completed secondary school before the pandemic and UNESCO estimates that girls will be disproportionately affected by school closures. McKinsey & Company estimated that India could add $770 billion to the country’s GDP by 2025 by encouraging girls to study and participate in the workforce.
