Listen: A few weeks back, I stopped by Harley Davidson‘s Juneau offices (not too far from our own studios), for a breakfast honoring Harley employees who volunteer. One of the major factors an individual must take into account when considering a volunteer opportunity — how realistic is the time commitment? Unfortunately this is a very real and practical concern. Few people, especially those with a family and a house, have much time to spare.
Harley-Davidson makes volunteering a bit easier for its employees — Harley-Davidson provides time off to its employees to volunteer for programs like Junior Achievement. Harley-Davidson also supports employees who participate in volunteer opportunities like Big Brothers Big Sisters (more on them in weeks to come!). At the volunteer breakfast I attended, I spoke with Harley employee Valerie Larry, who also spends time in the classroom with Junior Achievement.
