What do 73 Companies x 3 =? 219 Volunteers and Community Partners Showed up to teach students about their industry at Career City 2017 presented by Ranger Good Works and the Ranger Technical Resources Team.
Our Community Partners shared their time and talent with the Dillard Elementary students to improve lives by helping build the children’s hopes and dreams for their future. Our Partners showed compassion and generosity. They were aware of the need to share their skills and knowledge. 2017 marked our first “all grades inclusive” attempt and it went just like it did last year. Outstanding and over 900 children were included!
To quote Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
See us and our community partners in action!
HOUR OF CODE – December 2016
For the 4th year in a row, Ranger Good Works had an outstanding team show up to Volunteer with us for the Computer Science Education Week and CODE.ORG Hour of Code initiative held at Dillard Elementary School.
Over 800 k-5 students participated in both “Unplugged” (paper activities and commanding people to move like robots) and computer “Plugged” coding programs on their tech devices. The students and volunteers didn’t want to stop after the sounding of the bell for everyone to end their session. One eager and talented coder stated, “I have been waiting all year for The Hour of Code and was dreaming about this day since we did it last year.” Volunteers walked out of the session proudly wearing a #BrowardCodes sticker to show their participation in a wonderfully productive and fulfilling coding event.
Thank you to everyone who supports Ranger Good Works in our effort to give the students at Dillard Elementary the 3 T’s. Time Talent Treasure!
Our Partners included Dillard Elementary Staff, Ranger Technical Resources, Van Dutch, Vocabulary/Spelling City, Wells Fargo, Safety Guys, Broward County Clerk of Courts, Giant Titan, Yachting Today, Casbah Spa and several others amazing volunteers.
