Ask any employee at McGraw-Hill what makes the company special and they’ll inevitably point to our mission and dedication to helping students learn and prepare for their future lives. It’s that shared focus that motivates each of us day in and day out – no matter our role and regardless of where in the world we work.
Part of that work involves volunteerism and giving back. Last month, from May 13th-17th, McGraw-Hill held its first-ever Global Volunteer Week where employees from around the world came together to show collective strength all for one common theme: Future Ready: Equity and Access for All Students.
Employees from more than 20 McGraw-Hill locations around the world supported a variety of projects during Global Volunteer Week, including:
- Assembling 241 STEAM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Art/Math) Education Maker Challenge Kits that benefit Orange County Title 1 elementary and junior high schools in California
- Providing educational support to over 200 girls in two Rainbow Homes facilities in India
- Providing more than 100 books donated by employees to Head Start programs in Iowa
