Clements in the Community: Best Buddies

The Clements team volunteered at the WVSA School for Arts in Learning (SAIL) by serving as math and reading buddies to students from March through May 2009. SAIL is a public charter school (K-6) located in Washington, D.C. that teaches academics through the arts to children with a variety of learning differences. 

Account Executive Janness Pooran-Thomas tutored Imani, a bright, energetic fifth-grader, on basic math problems once a week. Along with nine other Clements employees, she donated 30 minutes of her time each week, which the company matched with a monetary contribution to the school.

“It was a very rewarding experience for me,” said Janness. “I’m proud that Clements is involved in the local community and offered its employees this special volunteer opportunity. I looked forward to spending time with my buddy every week and felt like I was doing my part to give back.”
