Goldman Sachs: Painting the Way to a Brighter Future

Out of breath from scaling five flights of stairs, the Goldman Sachs representatives quickly gathered their nametags and filed into what would be the competitive arena for the day. With 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, and a living room, this foster home proved to be a challenge for the 17 Community TeamWorks (CTW) participants, but as ABC’s founder Steve Hwang advised in his prep talk, this Corporate Social Responsibility project would test their “teamwork and problem solving skills.” The additional energy and enthusiasm displayed by 6 former ABC DREAM students further contributed to the productivity of the day. 


 
Utilizing the limited time and resources they were given, one team especially demonstrated excellent teamwork skills and was awarded for their hard work. On May 19, 2012, the once barren walls transformed each of the rooms into warm and inviting spaces, soon to be the future home to many of ABC’s incoming class of DREAM program students.
