As the world celebrated the 48th annual Earth Day, our company was able to let the Bay Area know about our efforts to help the environment by doing more than just recycling.
We got a chance to tell a side of our story that many don’t often see—the fact that we are as much committed to repairing, refurbishing and reusing electronics as we are to giving a second chance to individuals with high-risk backgrounds. We believe they too deserve the opportunity to repair, refurbish and reuse their lives.
From skills developed through training and gainful employment, we often provide opportunities to ex-offenders through our strategic partnerships and alliances with organizations around the Bay Area.
Entities including Alameda and Santa Clara Counties, Sutter Health, Genentech, the Transbay Transit Center and others are partners in our programs that train ex-offenders–from Camp Sweeney, BOSS (Bay Area Self Sufficiency), Richmond Detention Center, Oakland Private Industry Council (PIC) and elsewhere–for gainful and sustainable employment.
KTVU captured the story for this year’s Earth Day celebration. Check out the segment.
