TQS is committed to engaging with our local communities and giving back to those in need. Here are some of the initiatives we are proud to support:
Junior Achievement’s purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. TQS volunteers work with schools/students ranging from 1st grade to high-school, providing classroom mentoring and career preparation. With the help of the JA Program, TQS is committed to affect positive change in community graduation rates, workforce talent, and greater financial and entrepreneurial education for young adults.
Launch DeKalb County
Inspired in part by the TV show Shark Tank, the program is an opportunity to bring students, community organizations, and business leaders together to promote entrepreneurship and support the talented youth. With the program spearheaded and developed by our President/CEO, Chris Straw, TQS volunteers help to secure scholarships and market the program to local schools and students.

HopeLine from Verizon
HopeLine collects no-longer used wireless phones and accessories to benefit victims of domestic violence. Access to a wireless phone can help victims of domestic violence rebuild their lives, by giving them the means to communicate with family, friends, agency and shelter support staff and current or prospective employers. TQS proudly contributes to the program by donating decommissioned company cell phones to the program for re-use by those in need.
Human-I-T transforms unwanted or inoperative technology into operational and educational tools for the millions in need. Striving to go beyond recycling, the organization provides refurbished technology, digital literacy, and vocational training to as many qualified humans as possible, while providing a responsible way to recycle e-waste. TQS donates older technology equipment like computers and printers to the Human-I-T program. We rest easy knowing that our electronic waste is being handled responsibly and put to good use for those in need.
DeKalb High School
DeKalb High School has active communities built around their band and show choir programs. These teams bring together many families across our local community and host major performance competitions for area bands and choirs each year. TQS plays a huge role in the execution of these events, from coordinating volunteers to marketing and promoting the events throughout our region.
