Evolve IP Extends Partnership with Junior Achievement

August 24, 2016 / Evolve IP

Award-winning Cloud Services Provider Helping to Change the Future for More Than 34,000 Students in Southeastern Pennsylvania

WAYNE, Pa. August 23, 2016Evolve IP, The Cloud Services Company™, today announced it has extended its partnership with Junior Achievement through a combination of student mentoring as well as technology initiatives. Junior Achievement (JA) is the world’s largest organization dedicated to preparing young people to succeed in the global economy through a variety of financial literacy, work-readiness and entrepreneurship programs.

Evolve IP’s original engagement with JA’s Southeastern Pennsylvania chapter came as the organization recognized that its legacy phone system was hampering growth. With the need for a cloud-based solution, but limited to a modest not-for-profit budget, JA turned to Evolve IP for a state-of-the-art communications system that allowed for rapid expansion and enabled employees to work remotely; exactly the same as if they were in the office.

Now, as JA plans to double the number of students in the program to 60,000, they have added cloud computing services including desktops as a service and virtual data center solutions. These services allow JA’s team to focus on providing educational services while gaining greater mobility and being assured of business continuity, security and scalability.

“We are now truly a mobile organization and the Evolve IP OneCloudTM, which unifies cloud computing and communications, has enabled our associates to spend more time on initiatives that directly impact students,” said Junior Achievement of Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter President Paul Kappel, Jr. “However, Evolve IP has done much more for JA than just provide great technology services. Through the company’s Evolve Cares program they have also had a direct impact on our organization’s mission.”

As the partnership with JA progressed, Evolve IP became involved in its cause, with associates serving at in-school programs and working one-on-one with students. Evolve IP volunteers spend time in classrooms teaching business administration skills while also hosting students on the Evolve IP campus as part of the JA student company program. Tim Develin, a four-year JA participant, notes, “While the skills I learned from Evolve IP are focused predominantly on business, I’ve also learned things that I can apply to my personal life. I’ve learned important interpersonal abilities like networking, speaking confidently to groups, communicating clearly and effectively in different settings, and active listening. I’ve gained so much from the Evolve IP mentors.”

“Evolve IP is extremely proud to partner with JA and support its critical work to empower young people to succeed,” said Evolve IP’s President, COO and Founding Partner, Guy Fardone. “We have a long history of supporting Junior Achievement in a variety of capacities and our involvement goes well beyond the role of technology provider. Evolve IP is thrilled to play a key role JA’s business and technological growth and especially in the development of their eager students.”
