In our minds, being a part of the community doesn’t mean being apart of the community. We live here, we work here, we are raising our families here…we feel like it is our responsibility to make positive contributions to society as a whole whenever and wherever we can.
Below are a few of the projects we are involved in…
Started by V-Squared Creative in 2014, the Passport to Boise program gives kids a way to learn about and connect with local businesses in the valley. Each summer around 40 local businesses open their doors to youngsters from ages 7-17 to teach them about what they do and how they make money.
Through monthly workshops or other activities the kids get to visit these businesses and participate on a small scale what it would be like to be an entrepreneur, learn a new skill, or explore different careers opportunities. Last summer, over 200 kids participated in the program.
Each semester, in partnership with the College of Business and Economics, we host 2-3 open Q&A panels for business students. This consists of bringing in local entrepreneurs, corporate executives, or other business professionals to answer questions from the students about a wide variety of business-related topics. To date we have had panels on entrepreneurship, marketing, human resources, supply chain management, finance, information technology, and more. We both moderate the panels and founder Tobe Brockner has also sat on several of the panels with some of Boise’s most prominent business leaders.
Although affiliated in name with Boise State, the hockey club is an independent organization that gives young hockey players experience playing at the college level. As fans of the sport we participate with the club through a board seat and volunteer time. V-Squared Creative also donated the web design build for the club.
