What Carter Knows

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACarter jumped at the chance to use his technology expertise from work to help adults at the PPL Learning Center computer lab.

“I love to knock down the barriers of technology so people can do what they need to do,” Carter said. “It’s incredible to help adults accomplish things that make a tangible difference.”

Carter regularly helps participants write resumes, fill out job applications, and proof homework for people who are learning English. His volunteerism isn’t only helping participants; his employer is matching his time with financial support to PPL, and it’s had an effect on his own life.

“I’m gaining a lot of perspective. Sometimes it’s hard to go to work Monday morning, but here they are, working hard to get to go to a job. It helps me be grateful for what I have, and be a part of sharing it.”
