Visa engaged new hires in impactful volunteer work through WeHero's self-guided volunteer experiences!
Visa is committed to advancing inclusive, equitable, and sustainable economic growth for everyone, everywhere.
To highlight Visa's culture around corporate citizenship and philanthropy, Visa wanted to plan corporate volunteer projects for all new hires.
Because of Visa's goals around supporting underserved students, we recommended they have new hires participate in Education Access. This volunteer experience was created in partnership with the Kids In Need Foundation to support students who need school supplies.
During every employee onboarding process for Visa, the corporate citizenship team received large WeHero boxes with all the needed education supplies, materials for educating employees about the cause and nonprofit, and instructions for successfully executing the volunteer experience themselves.
At the end of each volunteer event, UPS would come to Visa's offices, and pick up the completed backpacks that were made for the students.
WeHero and the Kids In Need Foundation work with underserved school districts to understand the exact needs of the students. WeHero sources all the needed supplies and has corporate volunteers assemble the backpacks for distribution in their local community.
Visa supported thousands of students with school supplies so they could be successful in the classroom.
