Thank you, Zovio!

Zovio’s Corporate Social Responsibility goal is Activating Ambition in all learners, and we do this by focusing on two core areas: providing opportunities for all and supporting learning beyond the classroom.

On November 13, 2019, our new corporate partner Zovio hosted a check presentation during their ribbon-cutting ceremony at their new corporate headquarters in Chandler.  Zovio’s generous donation will help to support JAG’s career and college readiness program. 

Earlier this school year, Zovio held a Back-to-School Drive collecting more than 8,300 school supplies for JAG students who struggle financially and may otherwise do without.  The Zovio team packed and delivered the supplies to the JAG staff during the August Back-to-School Celebration. “We were overjoyed when the Zovio team delivered all the school supplies at our staff meeting,” said Trinetta Lipsey, Director of Programs. “There were tears of joy and excitement as the JAG Coordinators collected the items for their students in need.”

Zovio has a robust history of spreading social good and raising awareness, donating $10.3 million in community contributions since 2005.  In addition, Zovio promotes social responsibility by giving their staff the time and resources to support the communities where they live, work and play, forming lasting relationships with community partners. 

“We’re beyond thankful for the wonderful new partnership with Zovio, and sincerely appreciate their generosity and support.” said Graciela Garcia Candia, President, Jobs for Arizona’s Graduates. “Their $25,000 donation will be instrumental in allowing us to serve more young people throughout Arizona, helping them overcome significant barriers to pursue productive, successful paths in school, work and life.” 

“We’re collaborating with organizations like JAG that align with our vision and mission of activating ambition.  Our giving platform incorporates two pillars: learning for all and learning beyond the classroom. We’re focused on providing solutions that address and solve the skills gap, which aligns nicely with the work JAG is doing.  JAG is working hard to ensure that local students graduate with the skills necessary for the jobs of tomorrow,” explained Vickie Schray, Chief External Affairs Officer at Zovio.
