Volunteer Day

On June 24, the GTE team went out of the office to give back to the local community in Pittsburgh by volunteering. We went to Open Hand Ministries and were tasked with fixing up a house.

Open Hand Ministries explained that they renovate old homes in the Pittsburgh area and resell them to families who they have been working with for years. Pittsburgh is becoming unaffordable for many individuals, so Open Hand Ministries works to provide families with houses within their budget.

GTE spent the day demolishing, installing new flooring, and measuring for an addition on the back of the house. The intern cohort learns skills such as company evaluations and financial modeling skills in the office and outside of the office they got to learn other useful skills such as how to use a nail gun, the most effective way to destroy a fireplace, and the best type of plywood and glue to use for subflooring. By working together as a team, we accomplished a lot that will hopefully make a lasting impact! 

Overall, the volunteering experience was a great chance for the team at GTE to work collaboratively on a project that benefits the community. Not only did the opportunity allow the summer intern cohort to bond with and get to know the GTE crew better, but it also gave us a moment to remember the importance of volunteering and corporate philanthropy, something that we hold close to our hearts here at GT Entrepreneurs.
