As a proud partner of CareerVillage.org, TekStream is honored that many of its employees have contributed to this important milestone.

“We are excited to be a part of the growth at CareerVillage,” said Abby Mack, HR Analyst, TekStream. “TekStream is proud to continue their partnership with CareerVillage and we look forward to providing additional career advice to underserved youth in 2022!”
Organizations like CareerVillage are playing an increasingly important role in the intersection of the lives of students, volunteers, educators, and corporations like TekStream who are looking for ways to equip young people, especially those in underserved communities, with the information and skills they need to become career ready.
TekStream is proud to be at the forefront of the global shift to online volunteering. Participation in virtual volunteering steadily increased prior to the pandemic but 2020 greatly accelerated the pace of the social sector going digital and expanded their reach. This comes at a time when nonprofit beneficiaries increasingly need services online.
CareerVillage.org students studying from home and unable to participate in extracurricular activities, are able to receive fast, relevant, and diverse answers to their career questions at the tip of their fingertips from TekStream professionals and many others.
TekStream employees have seen the challenges young people are facing and have taken action by giving personalized career advice. Their swift actions have had far-reaching impact and demonstrated the ability and flexibility of every citizen to support local to global communities throughout the pandemic.
