DDR Global will translate NBILC’s press releases into Spanish and Chinese, will translate correspondence from and into Chinese, will develop multicultural collateral to promote the organization, and will volunteer members of its company to teach TESL in China in the upcoming year.
In conjunction with this philanthropic initiative, DDR Global’s founder and CEO, Jay Rossi, joined NBILC’s Board of Directors, and will contribute to the organization’s development efforts.
“Volunteering our services to NBILC is just one small step that we can take to facilitate cross-cultural education and understanding between the U.S. and China. At DDR Global, we pride ourselves on thinking globally and acting locally, and donating our time and resources to help our friends at NBILC fulfill their mission, as well as impact the lives of children on two continents, is a very worthy cause,” said Rossi.
Robin Bruscato, President and Executive Director of NBILC, indicated the organization has witnessed significant growth by inviting outside organizations to get involved in their programs. “We’ve been successful at establishing partnerships with diverse organizations, and we are delighted to call DDR Global our multicultural communications partner.”
