Payscout is reflecting on its second full year as a Champion with the Jefferson Awards Foundation. Two years ago today, Payscout partnered with JAF, the nation’s most prestigious and longest-standing organization dedicated to powering and celebrating service.
Over the past year, Payscout has continued its involvement with Students in Action, participating in the Fall and Winter Training in Los Angeles, as well as the annual Competition in both New Jersey and Los Angeles. The Payscout team has volunteered their time with Van Nuys Middle School and were proud to see the students earn a gold-level banner award for their accomplishments.
Payscout activated the Lead 360 project and donated more than 200 Emma’s Art Kits to the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital and the Newark Beth Israel Medical Center.
Payscout is proud to have generated the world’s first donation made in virtual reality to the Jefferson Awards Foundation.
In May, Payscout, the Greater LA JAF team, and several SIA students and families attended opening day for the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks, thanks to tickets provided by Christine Simmons, President & COO of the Sparks. Ms. Simmons announced the donation while addressing the SIA students at the Winter Training at UCLA.
The Students in Action teams from schools in the San Fernando Valley area were honored by their council members at the Los Angeles City Council spring meeting, which was a tremendous educational opportunity for the students.
In recognition of her work with Payscout Gives and JAF, Payscout nominated Erica Boatman-Dixon as employee volunteer of the year, giving her the opportunity to travel to Washington DC in June to the JAF National Ceremony. There she had the opportunity to interact with recognized volunteers from around the country and meet with congressional representatives from California.
It is clear that 2018-2019 will be another enriching and exciting year for Payscout as a JAF Champion. Changes are on the horizon with JAF and Payscout’s involvement, so continue reading this blog for more announcements about our partnership.
