What can you do in 100 hours? Over 365 days, in big and small ways, Booz Allen people answered the question and proved to be a real force for good in their communities.
In celebration of Booz Allen’s centennial in 2014, the firm challenged its employees to volunteer 100 hours to charitable causes, with the goal of giving a collective 100,000 hours back to the communities where they work and live.
Whether it was Booz Allen-led initiatives like Rebuilding Together, Toys for Tots, Operation Homefront, Salute Military Golf Association, International Coastal Cleanup, or FIRST ® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) or the personal volunteer commitments of our employees, in all, they volunteered more than 152,000 hours benefitting almost 1,500 not-for-profit organizations across the country.
For Jeffrey Cadman, a Booz Allen senior lead technologist, the answer was to mentor a young woman who went on to study engineering at MIT. The best memory for Norman Galer, a lead associate, was helping renovate a National Guard Armory that serves as a halfway house for homeless veterans. For Karen
Jeffrey Cadman wasn’t even aware of FIRST until he joined Booz Allen, which sponsored 72 FIRST robotics teams during the 2014-15 season, all mentored by our staff. Founded in 1989 by Dean Kamen, an inventor and entrepreneur, FIRST was created to inspire young people’s interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, NH, the not-for-profit public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.
Cadman has volunteered for FIRST for five years. “I mentored one girl who was a really well-rounded student, involved in basketball and dance, and ended up going to MIT for an engineering degree,” Cadman said. “That she asked for my input and advice on her career direction was personally rewarding, and a testament to the relationships that can form when you put yourself out there in a volunteering capacity.”
Homeless veterans in St. Louis have new resources to help them return to stability, thanks to the efforts of Booz Allen Lead Associate Norman Galer. Galer helped renovate the Joseph Center in East St. Louis, IL, an old National Guard Armory that has been converted into a halfway house for homeless veterans. “The project involved multiple days, one of which fell on National Service and Remembrance Day in recognition of September 11. We had earmarked one of our fundraising efforts specifically for the center, and I was able to present the funds to the director that day,” Galer said.
“It says something about an individual when they invest their time for a cause. Likewise I think it says something about a company that encourages and supports the volunteer efforts of its employees,” he said.
Karen McKechie, who volunteers for the Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) Cat Team in northern Virginia, remembers Lucky the cat, who had been horribly abused and needed a long-term foster home where his medical needs could be met. “I stepped up to take him. Lucky spent 3 months at the HART vet having multiple surgeries and procedures,” McKechie explained. “He got regular visits from HART volunteers and one fell madly in love with him, along with almost 2,000 Facebook followers who helped raise the funds for his medical care,” she said. “My volunteer work has had a huge impact on me as a person and on my work at Booz Allen.”
