snapshot of Care Force partners In December of 2009, Care Force led almost 1,000 employees from NVIDIA and the local community in a regeneration project at the McKinley Elementary School in San Jose California. Participants painted the exterior of the school, built cubbies, painted murals and play ground graphics, tiled benches, led children in carnival games, and landscaped both the school and adjacent park. On a scale of 1 – 5, with 5 being “Strongly Agree” when posed with the question, “I am likely to volunteer again in next year’s Project Inspire Event” the average employee response was 4.8 and the most frequent response was 5. Reference: Toni Hansen, NVIDIA Project Inspire From 2001 until 2008, Care Force helped launch and grow PepsiCo’s Global Employee Community Service Initiative from a single event in Westchester County, New York, into a global event spanning three countries and two continents. At its height, Care Force led over 1,600 PepsiCo Employees in eight events. In the final year of our partnership, on a scale from 1- 4, with 4 being excellent, when asked if they would recommend our events to a colleague, the average response was a 3.9, with the most frequent response being 4.

T-Mobile Huddle Up service events focus on beautification and improvement of afterschool spaces so that children can be proud of the spaces in which they learn. As of October 2010, T-Mobile Huddle Up has engaged over 8,000 T-Mobile employees in 56 transformative community service events that have impacted the lives of over 14,000 children.

We realized from the start that in order to be successful – to meet our mission – we had to partner with experts in the field of high-impact community service. The Care Force team became our MVPs – they brought a wealth of experience, expertise and enthusiasm to the White Sox and our Corps. Following their lead we have successfully executed two amazing service projects here in Chicago. With Care Force’s leadership we definitely hit a grand slam. - Christine O'Reilly, Senior Director of Community Relations, Chicago White Sox
highly satisfied volunteers Care Force uses the Net Promoter Score concept, a common business approach to assessing stakeholder satisfaction. At the end of each Care Force event, participants are asked if they would recommend their experience to a friend or colleague. Answers are given on a scale of 1 - 10, with 10 being most likely to recommend. Many organizations have Net Promoter Scores of only 5% to 10%. In other words, promoters barely outnumber detractors.
