The TaskUs Scholars Program was founded in 2012 to provide access to higher-quality private education for our Filipino employees’ children than is available through public school systems.
In 2016, we awarded 112 scholarships each worth approximately $1,100 U.S. This money pays for students’ tuition, classroom supplies, backpacks, and school books. We have doubled the number of scholarships granted annually since initiating the program.
for Teaching Entrepreneurship
TaskUs supports the next generation of young entrepreneurs in underserved communities through its involvement with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) organization.
Founded in 1987, NFTE provides programs for and inspires students from low-income communities to stay in school, business skills training, personal development, and opportunities to train for a successful future.
Gawad Kalinga Orphanage
The “TaskUs Gives Back!” program provides sustainable solutions to social challenges, lets employees identify with the public, and supports local initiatives. One recipient of this program is the Gawad Kalinga Orphanage, located in Bahay Kalinga, Philippines.
As of July 2016, TaskUs’ investment has helped to enrich the lives of 27 orphans, through activities, medical, and learning programs. The program has plans to expand its reach to 40 children at this location.
SCHOOL - LAWNDALE
This public high school uses its environment “as a lens for real-life learning” to prepare its students for university-level studies and to become leaders. TaskUs is proud to sponsor one of its classrooms and provide mentorship to these bright young minds.
