Volunteerism

Volunteerism

Giving back is intrinsic to Paramount's culture; employee volunteers have served communities around the world.

The Paramount Volunteer Crew is a dedicated group of more than 150 employee volunteers who meet monthly to plan projects and hear from local non-profits.  The group organizes and participates in a wide variety of service opportunities throughout the year including serving meals to families of sick children at the Ronald McDonald House, working on therapeutic arts and crafts projects with at-risk teens, and assembling care packages for US troops serving overseas.   In 2011, the volunteer crew had an average of three projects every month!  One of the group's signature projects is the annual gift drive, where employees "adopt" deserving children & families and purchase items from their Holiday wish lists.  

 

Viacommunity Day is a Viacom-wide celebration of service that deploys thousands of employees each year to volunteer in communities where the company has operations.   In 2011, more than 1,400 Paramount employees worked at project sites around the world on a wide range of activities including beautifying public schools, mentoring students, cooking and packaging food for those in need, cleaning beaches and rivers, adopting pets and much more. 

 

 

Viacommunity Day 2013

On Friday, April 19, 2013, Paramount Pictures celebrated its eighteenth
year of giving back at Viacommunity Day, the company’s Viacom-wide annual day of community service.  This year, more than 1,500 Paramount employees in nineteen countries joined together to make a difference in their communities by volunteering at local schools, parks, and nonprofit organizations across the globe.

More Than 1,400 Hours Served!

In 2012, members of the Paramount Volunteer Crew gave more than 1,400 hours to projects throughout our community. These projects ranged from serving meals at the Ronald McDonald House to helping students complete their FAFSA (financial aid) forms; from cheering on athletes at the Special Olympics to picking up trash and leaves in a neighboring community garden.

The Season of Giving

Each year during the holiday season, Paramount partners with a local non-profit organization for a holiday giving drive. In 2012, the studio partnered with Aviva Children & Family Services, whose mission is to provide a comprehensive range of therapeutic and educational programs to help at-risk, emotionally distressed, abused, and neglected youth – as well as their families – function more effectively as individuals and within the family and community. Employees were able to read wish lists and “adopt” a child or family in need.
