We pride ourselves on being involved in the communities we live and work by providing by not only providing promising careers but also in giving back. Our community involvement initiatives span our entire geographic footprint and allow our people to give back in meaningful ways.
In 2019, Quanta companies contributed at least $10 million and thousands of volunteer hours to non-profit partners throughout North America. Since 2017, Quanta (through company contributions and contributions from employees, vendors and other partners) has raised more than $1.8 million for a relief fund designed to assist employees recovering from natural disasters. To further help the local community, Quanta invested in a partnership with Sam Houston State University in 2017 to create the Workforce Development Program. This initiative led to a unique environment that provides students hands-on experience, customized curriculum and internships, benefiting Quanta and the entire industry. Through Quanta, Mears also has several partnerships with universities around the country to recruit, hire and train the workforce of the future. Quanta invests in and supports various workforce and leadership development initiatives, including its training and educational facilities and partnerships with unions, trade associations and military bases.
