Volunteer Spotlight: W.O.W. In-Sync, Inc.
Global Soap is particularly proud to have a volunteer partnership with WOW In-Sync., Inc. This organization has a mission of supporting adults with developmental disabilities through training and mentorship so they can be empowered to pursue their passions in work and life.
Each Monday a group of young adults in their Simply Biz program come assist us in our Atlanta soap recycling plant. According to Raquel G. Smith, Employment Specialist at WOW In-Sync, the opportunity to assist Global Soap helps the group gain valuable and realistic work experience while helping the community. She listed communication skills, quality assurance, teamwork and work safety as some of the skills utilized in the soap recycling plant.
Atlanta plant manager Eric Guthrie has a special bond with this group and looks forward to their arrival each week. As he said, “They are so eager to learn and do a good job for us. And we manage to have a bit of fun as well as work!”
Global Soap Project is grateful for this mutually positive volunteer experience!
