DMS employees participate in School Volunteers Program in Springfield, MA Community

On Thursday, November 12, 2009, employees from Disability Management Services, Inc. will be concluding an eight week math tutoring program with students from the Elias Brookings Elementary School. Nine volunteers have been tutoring students since September 24, 2009. The relationship came about when Tiffany L. Greene, Assistant Vice President of Human Resources at Disability Management Services, Inc., and Julia Ortiz, Program Manager at Springfield School Volunteers, met in a Springfield Leadership Institute, 2009 class hosted by The Affiliated Chambers of Commerce of Greater Springfield, Inc. in collaboration with the Western New England College School of Business. Mrs. Greene states “DMS Volunteers have enjoyed the sense of accomplishment that comes from helping the children with math. It’s an important life skill, and opens so many other doors. We’re proud to be associated with the program, and to provide employees with the opportunity to volunteer their time at the Brookings Elementary School”. Disability Management Services, Inc. has committed to continuing its relationship with Brookings School in 2010.
