ProTech named Boys & Girls Club Technology Sponsor

ProTech has become the official technology partner of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis. The partnership will include a financial investment of over $20,000 to improve the organization’s technology and professionals to volunteer technology training at the Technical Training Center.  

Steve Bargiacchi, CEO of ProTech announced the new partnership and presented the check to Boys & Girls Club staff at the Technical Training Center Dinner Series Tuesday. Bargiacchi said ProTech sees this partnership as an investment in a better Memphis. “In this technology age, staying connected is critical for any organization and ProTech understands that a non-profit is no different than any corporate customer in this respect,” Bargiacchi said. “Our partnership will allow the Boys & Girls Clubs to continue to allocate their resources to serving kids better while gaining improved technology and service everyone in the organization can benefit from."

In addition to the financial support ProTech plans to integrate their employees as volunteers to help the college-bound and career-tracked students explore job opportunities in the field of technology.

“Our industry offers young people tremendous opportunities to enjoy fulfilling careers if they know what skills they need and options to consider,” Bargiacchi said. “Each new trainee who chooses a career in technology enlarges our hiring pool and allows us to choose better candidates to help us meet the service standards our clients expect. By partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs, we are really investing in the future of Memphis and ProTech.”

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Memphis’ primary goal is to help members achieve their full potential academically and becoming caring and responsible citizens.  Larry Pennington, interim CEO, says the ProTech partnership is exactly what they hope to achieve with other corporate partners in the future.

“We always welcome the financial support of companies who want to invest in the work we’re doing but this partnership takes that investment to a new level,” said Pennington. “The impact ProTech’s employees will make on our students by volunteering their time as role-models and career-mentors is priceless.”

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis serves nearly 4,000 members and has provided a safe and positive place for the kids of Memphis since 1962. The organization serves kids, ages 6-18, at six Club locations around Memphis and offers career training for students, ages 16-22, at the Technical Training Center. The mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. To learn more visit www.bgcm.org
