Job Search Educational Non-Profit Celebrates National Volunteer Week
Successfully complimenting colleges, technical schools and MBA programs with proven 21st century job search and career management training, Empowering Today's Professionals recognizes its 100% volunteer work force.
New York, NY April 26, 2013 – Addressing the importance and impact of volunteering, President Barrack Obama stated in a recent proclamation "National Volunteer Week is a time to renew that fundamentally American idea of service and responsibility. It is also a time to recognize the men, women, and children who bring that principle into practice every day by lifting up the people around them. Volunteering rates are the highest they have been in years. More Americans are answering the call to serve -- not for fanfare or attention, but because they want to give back. And as they do, they are making our communities stronger. They are boosting local economies. And they are building ladders of opportunity for those who need them most."
Founded in 2004 by successful speaker and coach, Rod Colon, Empowering Today's Professionals (ETP) has been celebrating all week by recognizing its volunteers. Rod explains "ETP teaches people how to take control of their careers in the same way a chief executive officer directs all critical operations of a large corporation. Our mission has been to impact students and professionals globally to manage their careers – by owning it. Becoming a Non-Profit Organization gives ETP resources to continue our commitment to empowering today’s and tomorrow’s professionals globally."
Sponsored by Points of Light Institute — National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each subsequent year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events have been happening throughout this week.
"Volunteers are the rocket fuel that propels Empowering Today's Professionals. Our volunteers and non-profit status truly facilitate being able to expand our support, training and mentoring of professionals worldwide with program development focused on 21st century job search training and life time career management programs that are not taught in colleges, technical schools or MBA programs." says ETP Executive Director Carl E. Reid
As part of this celebration, ETP published a Volunteer Directory on it's web site www.ETPnetwork.org for public recognition. The directory highlights volunteers, while allowing anyone to expand their networking sphere of influence by clicking on each volunteer's LinkedIn profile to make a connection.
Lamplighter Editor-in-Chief Adelaida (Aida) Rodriguez says "Today, I am proud to say that the Lamplighter Newsletter has helped promote ETP’s tenets on job search to its members and colleagues by the utilization of good networking and various social media."
