About Volunteer Project
Each year headquarters gives awards to regions for outstanding Corporate Social Responsibility projects. This year’s CSR initiative is focused around education. To work towards Acer’s mission of breaking barriers between people and technology, Acer employees are invited to volunteer as mentors for at-risk youth (ages 12-19). During the poetry workshop Acer employees and youth are able to enter into a dialogue and collaborative through art and poetry about issues that affect our youth; bridging our tech and arts community. The poetry workshop provides a safe space to speak and create content that will be used to collaborate with the digital workshops in film, photography and music! Topics can include effects of social media, mental illness, career choices, truancy, etc.
