What is DynCares?
DynCares is the charitable arm of Dyn, created with the purpose of giving back to the community by donations of money, services and volunteer hours.
How we’re involved
There are three different ways Dyn gives back to both the local and global community: cash donations, technology and resource donations and volunteer efforts.
Dyn contributes to a number of great organizations and we encourage you to as well.
In an effort to keep more of New Hampshire’s young talents to stay in-state, Dyn helps sponsor the NHHTC Kocher Scholarship program. Applicants must be an employee, or a dependent of an employee, of a Council member company, be enrolled full-time in a two-year/four-year program in a New Hampshire school and must do an internship at a member organization.
The goal of Stay Work Play NH is to expose more young people to the advantages of remaining in or returning to New Hampshire. The overall effort builds off the work of the University System of New Hampshire (USNH) and partnering organizations that established the 55% Initiative in 2007. This effort set a goal of encouraging at least 55% of the new graduates to stay compared to approximately 50% who currently stay. Here’s some additional info.
We’ve been involved with FIRST Robotics for several years as a group of our staff monitors students as they build their robots and put their talent into action. This event encourages the bright minds of tomorrow to invest in engineering and scientific careers, paving the road for personal achievement and helping the industry move forward.
City Year unites young people (ages 17-24) of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service, giving them the skills and opportunities to change the world. As tutors, mentors and role models, these diverse young leaders help children stay in school and on track, and transform schools and communities across the United States, as well as through international affiliates in Johannesburg, South Africa and London, England. City Year New Hampshire corps members serve in six elementary schools in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Our commitment to open source work
As a technology leader, we’re proud to help out with projects and open source work that benefit many. We encourage our employees to contribute to this type of work and sponsor some efforts as well.
