How We’re Preparing the Next Generation of High-Tech Professionals

At Protingent, we believe that engineers and technical professionals drive game-changing, world-improving innovations. We are always exploring ways to encourage and support the next generation of innovators. We also support a number of organizations, including, but not limited to:

  • Adopt a Highway – Adopt-a-Highway is a roadside clean-up program that promotes pride and local ownership in Washington.  Look for our stretch of 405 Southbound right after 520 interchange in Bellevue WA.
  • American Heart Association – AHA has long supported scientific research in their fight against heart disease and stroke. And they’re making a difference. The research funded through the generosity of donors is helping more and more people survive heart disease and stroke. AHA’s core research programs have launched or furthered the work of many of this country’s brightest researchers. And have added research awards that foster team science and accelerate discovery.
  • Education @ Elevation – Education at Elevation is a non-political non-profit committed to improving the lives of Tibetan children living in rural Eastern Tibet. Our vision is to bring hope to the children through education and spiritual growth that will provide them with roots for a brighter future.
  • Girls Giving Back – Girls Giving Back inspires hope and brings comfort and stability to individuals and families in need by improving living conditions in Puget Sound transitional shelters.
  • IEEE – IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its highly-cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe.
  • No Kid Hungry – Every kid needs three meals a day to grow up healthy, happy, and strong.  But today in America, too many children are missing those meals.  The good news? This is a problem we know how to solve.
  • HopeLink (Redmond, WA) – Hopelink is a social services nonprofit agency based in Redmond, WA.  The CEO is Catherine Cushinberry. It serves north and east King County, Washington, with food banks, energy assistance, housing, a family development program, transportation, and adult education.  Founded in 1971, it is one of the largest nonprofits in the state of Washington.
  • Northwest Harvest – Northwest Harvest is a non-profit organization supporting food banks in Washington state. Northwest Harvest distributes food to a network of more than 370 food banks, meal programs, and high-need schools throughout Washington State.
  • Toys for Tots – The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
  • The Trevor Project – Two decades ago, we responded to a health crisis. Now we’re building a safer, more inclusive world. LGBTQ young people are four times more likely to attempt suicide, and suicide remains the second leading cause of death among all young people in the U.S.
  • World Central Kitchen – World Central Kitchen (WCK) is a not-for-profit non-governmental organization devoted to providing meals in the wake of natural disasters.
