Here are some of the relationships we are proud to support:

The Cause

Junior Achievement’s purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. JA helps students realize that the education they are getting today will help them to have a bright future tomorrow. JA’s unique, volunteer delivered programs, show them all of the possibilities that lay before them. They realize they can choose different paths; College? A specific trade? Start their own business?

How TQS Helps

Numerous TQS employees volunteer their time to work with local kids ranging from 1st graders to high-school seniors, providing classroom mentoring and career preparation. We aim to affect positive change in community graduation rates, workforce talent, and greater financial and entrepreneurial education for young adults.

The Cause

TQS leadership is actively involved in promoting this new area program, which encourages students to think outside the box and get creative. Inspired in part by the TV show Shark Tank, Launch will create and encourage young entrepreneurs out of high school students. This program is an opportunity to bring students and schools, community organizations and business leaders together to promote entrepreneurship and support the talented youth in DeKalb County. This effort is also a way to help students develop real-world skills that are critical for post-graduation success.

How TQS Helps

The entire Launch DeKalb initiative was an effort spearheaded by our President/CEO Chris Straw. Several TQS departments have contributed to Launch DeKalb County, from securing scholarship awards to developing Launch DeKalb’s website and marketing materials.

The Cause

Access to a wireless phone and service, along with a voice mailbox 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. HopeLine is an award-winning, well-established program which was created to make a positive difference in the areas of domestic violence awareness, prevention and victim recovery.

How TQS Helps

iPhones no longer being used by TQS employees often get donated to the HopeLine program from Verizon Wireless. HopeLine collects no-longer used wireless phones, batteries, chargers and accessories in any condition from any service provider to benefit victims and survivors of domestic violence. Donated phones are then turned into valuable resources for nonprofit organizations and agencies that support domestic violence victims and survivors nationwide.

The Cause

Human-I-T transforms unwanted or inoperative technology into operational and educational tools for the millions in need. Striving to go beyond recycling by taking a progressive approach to electronic-waste management, vocational training and the Digital Divide. 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.

How TQS Helps

Older technology equipment like computers and printers no longer being used by TQS employees are sometimes donated 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.

The Cause

Dekalb High School has very active communities built around their band and show choir members. These teams bring together many families across our local community and host major performance competitions for area bands and choirs each year.

How TQS Helps

Our President/CEO Chris Straw personally chairs area invitational events for both band and choir. Several TQS departments contribute to these efforts each year, from coordinating volunteers to managing the group registration website.
