Volunteer Time-Off Program
We are committed to supporting the communities we work and live in. For ATR, one of the best ways to accomplish this is simply to support the individual efforts of our staff. Our internal employees are given five paid days off each year to
volunteer in their community at a nonprofit organization, school or library of their choice. On an individual basis, ATR’s staff is making a real difference.
Read their stories to learn more about the great organizations they support and how they are changing people’s lives for the better.
Christine Capuano - Make A Wish Foundation
I am a Technical Recruiter by career, but a huge side passion of mine is working with the Make a Wish Foundation as a Wish Granter! Luckily, by working for ATR International, I am allowed to easily combine the two, thanks to our special “VTO Days.”
Angelique Solorio - North County Community Services
For Angelique Solorio, changing lives is a way of life. Angelique sees the impact of unemployment on a daily basis, directing ATR job applicants through the application process that may land them a job that literally changes their lives. So during her four days of VTO, it was natural for Angelique to spend time volunteering at North County Community Services.
Megan Scheibli - De Anza Lions Club
For Megan Scheibli, giving back to the community is a family value. For many years, Megan and her family have dedicated countless hours to the DeAnza Lions Club to help those who are less
Sarah Yacono - Habitat for Humanity
Sarah Yacono is a hard worker. She’s always in the office early and is usually one of the last to leave. But recently, Sarah learned a whole new meaning to the term “hard work.” For her Volunteer Time Off, Sarah spent an entire week volunteering with Habitat for Humanity building homes for the less fortunate in her local community.
Beethoven Sabar - Adult Literacy Program
Beethoven Sabar is a regular at the library. In fact, she has spent the last eighteen months working as a volunteer for the Fremont Main Library’s adult literacy program Write to Read. She began her volunteer work as a computer literacy tutor, who also pitched in with clerical work. However, she quickly discovered other ways to put her
technological acumen to good use.
