Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
At PowerSkills we take seriously our responsibility to serve humanity. We believe in service with every fiber of our being and we don’t just do it when we are working with our clients. We continue to serve in daily life because that’s our purpose in life.
Actions and Commitments: We walk the talk
PowerSkills commits to using its talent-base and resources to tangibly support people and organizations and be a catalyst for positive change.
3 Ways We Fulfill Our Commitment to CSR
1. We share our talent.
Free Seminars to Non-Profit and Non-Governmental Organizations
Annually, PowerSkills offers 3 free multi-day seminars to non-profit organizations in America and around the world. The seminars and coaching services build the capacity of the organizations to serve their clients and communities and save valuable training dollars and resources along the way. When we select the NPO/NGO’s, we pay for the materials, all travel-related costs. Facilitators donate their time and considerable talents because we all believe that everyone, everywhere, in every community near and far, are our brothers and sisters. Our job on this planet is to help our brothers and sisters and we do that by providing key training and developmental support services to agencies that offer important services to their communities.
How you can help: if you know of a non-profit organization (NPO) or non-governmental organization (NGO), in the U.S. or around the world, that is seeking, and could benefit from,some free training or developmental services, like those offered by PowerSkills, invite them to visit our Contact page and request a seminar or service; then in the comment section, state that the organization is an NPO/NGO and that it is requesting free services. We’ll reach out to them and assess whether our free services are the right fit.
The agency’s or organization’s mission must address one of the following issues: human rights/equal rights/social justice (e.g., women’s rights, immigrant rights, etc.), disaster/crisis relief (e.g., refugee relief, disaster recovery), anti-poverty programming (e.g., educational support, poverty-relief, community development, etc.). The agency or organization must reach out to us on our website, explore our services, describe their mission and need, and let us know which type of service would help them build their capacity to serve others and fulfill their mission. We can’t guarantee free services to everyone, but we will select 3 agencies/organizations each year and provide free services and support…and we’ll let you know when we’ve completed our service.
Free Curriculum to Anyone Who Asks
The PowerSkills Team has designed a 1-day “crash course” on the topic of Advocacy, Allies, and Action. This course material is designed to help individuals, groups and organizations, who wish to promote a good cause, learn a few skills and strategies to mobilize themselves, develop partnerships and allies, become a good ally to others and take action. You can request a copy of this free curriculum by visiting our Contact Us page, signing up and requesting a seminar. Then, in the comment section of the form request a copy of our FREE Advocacy, Allies and Action curriculum.
