More than 1,600 HMH employees worldwide participated in a variety of volunteer events—as close to home as Boston and New York City and as far as Mexico and Ireland. Here’s a roundup of what some of our employees did to give back to the community we work so hard to support every day.
HMH hosted 30 students from Margarita Muñiz Academy and their teacher, Laura, in the Boston office. Twenty-one volunteers helped students craft and refine their college essays through an HMH collaboration with the nonprofit 826 Boston. The volunteer event also included an informal career path chat, and every student in attendance received a donated HMH book.
"I found the fact that my student partner was so open about sharing her difficult memories with me incredibly rewarding," says Tess Boyle, Boston Trade Contracts Associate for HMH. "Because of her willingness to allow me to read her very personal essay, we were able to connect quickly and spend the entire time working to make her piece of writing stronger.
