ATLANTA, Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Prommis Solutions, a provider of technology-enabled knowledge processing services for the real estate finance industry, has announced its collaboration with Talk About Your Future, Inc. (TAYF), an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization focused on helping at-risk students at Atlanta's urban High Schools to graduate and to move on to productive careers and happy, healthy lives.
As part of its involvement with Talk About Your Future, Prommis Solutions recently provided marketing support, logistics and technical support for the launch of GradyTalks.org, Talk About Your Future's completely revised website devoted to its work at Grady High School in Atlanta.
Prommis Solutions' CEO Denis Brosnan is Chairman of the Board of Directors of Talk About Your Future and has spoken in the organization's student lecture series. In March 2011, Brosnan addressed Grady High School students such topics as creating self-confidence and the importance of mentors. Several other Prommis Solutions employees will be speaking at Grady High school this coming school year.
At its core, the Grady Talks program provides a bi-weekly lecture series for Grady High School students. The topics covered by the all-volunteer corps of speakers include career planning, self-motivation techniques, communication skills and other subjects that nurture enthusiasm and support for the educational and career trajectory of the student population. Speakers are customarily business professionals and leaders from the greater Atlanta area, and have included not only professionals like Brosnan but also other noted figures such as former NBA basketball player and current sports announcer Chris Webber.
"At Grady Talks, our goal is to provide hope, guidance, inspiration, motivation and direction to these students," said Liz Lieberman, founder of Grady Talks. "This program is intended to help these students stay focused and diligent in school in order to achieve personal and professional success."
Grady Talks focuses on helping students find their passions and introducing them to the available options that can advance them toward their career goals. "Sixteen is the legal drop-out age – that's when students have the legal option to discontinue their schooling," said Brosnan. "We say 'no way' to that option. Prommis Solutions got involved with Grady Talks because we are committed to building a culture of highly skilled, motivated and happy employees. We feel it is within our social responsibility to support programs like Grady Talks that give our young people the motivation and tools they need to live happy, productive lives. Like Talk About Your Future, we believe that starts with a dream and a high school diploma."
