Intel employees have proved that they can do all of this and more through Intel’s skills-based volunteering program, Mentoring and Planning Services (MAPS). The program matches the skills of Intel employees with the challenges of schools, non-profits and government agencies.
One Arizona MAPS project paired an Intel software engineer named Patrick Grogg with the Town of Gilbert Fire Department. The town’s paramedics were still using a paper-and-pencil system for recording patient data in the field while serving a population of close to 220,000. But Patrick had the power to create a mobile, electronic application using the skills he honed at Intel.
