Every year on the second Friday in June everyone at Discovery Communications shows up for work. However, instead of checking in at our cubicle/desk or office we team up with organizations around the world working to imporve our communities. From park revitalizations, to rebuilding homes effected by natural disasters we set out to discover the collective impact we have as a company in a day of volunteerism.
This year my group worked with the NYJTL hosting a tennis clinic in the Bronx. For those who don't know NYJTL stands for New York Junior Tennis and Learning (emphasis on the learning). It is a great community based organization that helps kids with homework, tutoring, life lessons and oh yeah they also learn some tennis. They do great work throughout the city all at no cost to families (I know I used to go as a kid).
NYJTL has recently opened a new facility in Crotona Park, Bronx NY to further their mission of helping New York City kids in the classroom as well as on the tennis court.
Here are a few photos I took from Discover Your Impact Day 2015
