#ConcordeCares in 2016

#ConcordeCares

In 2016, we launched a new initiative at our campuses and our corporate office. While the concept of service is by no means new to us, we branded it, invested time and celebrated being a driving force of positive change in our communities by showing how #ConcordeCares.

Associates were encouraged to contribute to causes and local advocacy projects that were of significance to them, including but not limited to health care. With that level of philanthropic freedom, we saw nearly every sphere of society touched in a profound and meaningful way.

Through our collective efforts, we were reminded how fortunate we are and how a single act of kindness often impacts the giver more than the recipient.

We spent time planting trees, serving meals, providing medical services to families and everything in between.

Here’s a graphic to help visualizing how we spent our time this year!

#ConcordeCares

We share this information not to toot our own horns, but to lay a foundation for an even better year of service and to inspire you to do the same. Communities are only as strong as those who serve them. Find what brings your soul to life and pursue it with purpose!

As you make connections and uncover opportunities, let us know! We may just send a team of our own to join you. Because #ConcordeCares about the things that you care about, too!

Lucy Vang | Medical Assistant Graduate

“Concorde was one of my best vehicles that helped me gain the confidence I needed to change my life. … It all started with a vision, a will and Concorde.”

Marcus Streator | Respiratory Therapy graduate

“Without the support of certain instructors … I would not have pushed myself to grasp the concepts and pass my boards on the first attempt. Once I passed my boards, it was less than one month after that I landed my first Respiratory Therapist job where I am currently working with so much joy every day.”

Trenisha Jones | Dental Assistant Graduate

“I decided to go to school because I was tired of working dead-end jobs. … When I found out I was pregnant, I realized that I needed a better life for me, for my child, for my husband, and just to better myself.”

Andrea Nolan | Dental Assistant graduate

“Knowing I could be working as a Dental Assistant in eight months was crazy to me! I loved going to class and would drive an hour there every day. I’m truly happy that I took the step to go to Concorde. It was the best thing I have done for my family.”

James Harkins | Nursing Graduate

“What I liked about Concorde was that there was nothing flashy. They were very up front, very simple, answered all my questions. They were more concerned with my education than tuition.”
