Cambridge Systematics has been in the business of improving transportation systems to create more livable communities and to enrich the quality of life for the public for more than 40 years. We continue to encourage our staff to participate in various organizations at work and at home that promote important issues, including environmental stewardship and educational outreach. In keeping with our core values, we actively support our employee volunteer efforts by offering flexible schedules so they can positively impact both local communities and the world at large.
In each of our office locations, we partner with local organizations and community neighbors. Our community outreach efforts target the areas in which we live and work, including feeding the hungry, protecting abused children, and helping house the homeless. Making a difference in our communities is not only a part of our mission, it is simply part of our culture.
Our Cambridge, Massachusetts headquarters has partnered with Cambridge School Volunteers (CSV) since 1998, contributing time and money to support community development through the NetPals Program and tutoring. Members of our Cambridge staff volunteer in the NetPals Program and are paired with seventh grade students from the Rindge Avenue Upper School, exchanging emails. Throughout the school year, students write about their assignments and we offer positive feedback and suggestions. The support our employees provide through the NetPals Program and tutoring contributes to the academic success of these students.
