We’re building a better working world, one community at a time.

At EY, we have a strong commitment to community involvement and teamwork. If you join EY, you’ll soon learn that we take community leadership seriously. Our participation in the United Nations Global Compact and our publication of the Americas Corporate Sustainability Report are just two examples. But our spirit of involvement relies on the enthusiasm and skills of our people. Their passion is how we build real connections in the communities around us.

Unique skills, real contributions.

Corporate responsibility is integral to our strategy, our values and our day-to-day operations because it enables us to build sustainability in a changing world. Through programs like the College MAP program, which shows high school students a path to college, we help develop a thriving global community that is able to protect its environment, educate its children and become prosperous by fostering innovation and generating new businesses.

We invest in corporate responsibility through these four pillars:

  • Our marketplace: Social change through economic stability and growth.
  • Our workplace: Inclusivity in the workplace that fuels excellence.
  • Our communities: Investment in community, both locally and globally.
  • Our environment: Minimizing our footprint to support a viable future.

You have a person that cares about you and wants you to become something, so they’ll help you any way, any how.

EY Connect Day: community, connections and fun.

While there are many opportunities to volunteer and use your skills to make a difference, once a year, our people join together for EY Connect Day, a day of service and celebration within their communities. You might find yourself giving high school students a seminar on interviewing skills. Or painting a new community center. There so many opportunities to get involved, make new connections and have fun.

Volunteering builds my skills and keeps me grounded.

EY mentors are helping underserved youth.

Watch Gary Belske, EY Americas Deputy Managing Partner, speak to a group of local students and their EY mentors about how mentoring is helping students graduate from high school and enter college. The students and EY mentors are all participants in the EY College MAP program (Mentoring for Access and Persistence), which helps over 400 students every year to apply and prepare for higher education.

This program clearly resonates with our people. They like it, they enjoy doing it, and it makes them feel better connected.

Leveraging our best and brightest in Latin America.

Our EY Vantage program (formerly the Corporate Responsibility Fellows program) sends high-performing EY people to work with high-impact entrepreneurs in Latin America. Our EY Vantage Advisors are managers and above who work on projects throughout Latin America that are designed to leverage their distinct talents to the advantage of these businesses.

For our Advisors, the program offers an unparalleled professional growth opportunity that enhances their leadership, communication and project-management skills. For the entrepreneurs and their communities, it helps them catalyze real economic growth.

Take your skills to South America. And bring back so much more.

Our EarthWatch Ambassadors travel to Brazil or Mexico to conduct field research and contribute their skills to a local organization, giving them an opportunity to learn about environmental sustainability first-hand while providing business recommendations to local cooperatives.

As an EarthWatch Ambassador, you could find yourself helping scientists conduct research and using your  professional skills to assist local farmers, businesses and not-for-profit organizations. They’ll learn how to adopt economically and environmentally sustainable business practices and you’ll build leadership and teaming skills that you can take with you anywhere.

Working on such diverse teams at EY, you learn adapt to change.
