Strengthening Mobile’s Future through Community Support

Filed in Corporate Social Responsibility by on June 5, 2014 0 Comments

As Syniverse expands its global reach to better serve mobile users worldwide, we’re also finding hands-on opportunities to support our local communities while utilizing our expertise. I’m excited to share we’ve recently developed an education partnership with the Academy Prep Center of Tampa, a nonprofit private middle school that aims to prepare economically disadvantaged students to achieve academic success and become community leaders.

With the help of employees who serve as guest lecturers, we’ve identified a unique way for our mobile experts to support the education of local students while also broadening their perspectives on future careers.

Check out my brief video to learn more about Syniverse’s work with Academy Prep as well as what’s ahead.

Our Experts in Action

As I shared in the video, we’ve recently wrapped up an eight-week pilot course for seventh grade students that focuses on technology and computer programming. Below are photos of Syniverse experts teaching scratch programming during the course’s fifth week.
