Young professionals in Netherlands give back to the community
Nearly a dozen young professionals from PPG architectural, protective and marine coating sites across the Netherlands recently donated their time to NLdoet 2015, Holland’s biggest volunteer event of the year.
Members of the Young Professional Organization-Netherlands (YPO) team worked with other community volunteers to freshen up the Stichting Welziijn Dovenontmoetingscentrum (SWDA) with clean coats of paint and other accents. The SWDA Foundation, located in Amsterdam, helps deaf individuals develop and strengthen their social skills. PPG also donated Sigma, Histor and Veveo paints and supplies for the project.
Although the YPO volunteers work in a variety of PPG departments, they share an important trait in common – a strong desire to give back to the community and have fun doing it.
In addition to volunteer work, YPO members participate in personal development, networking and social activities throughout the year.
