Here are three inspiring examples: 1) A real estate agency sponsors a middle school’s parent-teacher organization to raise the visibility of its agents. 2) An engineering firm donates equipment and mentors students to encourage interest in science, technology, engineering and math. 3) A manufacturer partners with a community college to launch an apprenticeship program to help create skilled workers.
