As a twenty-something woman, my generation is more commonly associated with avo-toast and Keeping Up With The Kardashians rather than exceptional community service. So, when I was recently given the opportunity to support the NYC Youth Mentoring Initiative through Viacom's participation in “Good for Me.
As part of an ongoing effort to highlight employees within Viacom whose work in the community deserves the spotlight in itself, we recently connected with Aulston Taylor, Sr. Account Executive at BET Networks.
On Monday, June 11, Viacom interns and employees gathered in a pop music-filled conference room at the company’s Times Square headquarters. They had come to join Viacommunity – Viacom’s social-responsibility arm – to assemble duffle bags full of towels, sheet sets, laundry bags, comforters, backpacks and other items for disadvantaged college-bound students.
These are the same young people at the heart of so much of Viacom’s programming. On Sunday, May 20, Viacom showed that it is caring, giving, walking, and fighting to battle this epidemic by participating in AIDS Walk New York, the largest single-day AIDS fundraising event in the world.

Typically, the murals are designed for schools. This time around, however, the interns felt the Burbank YMCA served as the perfect platform for their altruistic work.
On Tuesday, May 8th, PENCIL, an organization devoted to ensuring the advancement of New York City students, made it possible for business professionals and school leaders to participate in a variety of activities that connected students to successful and caring adults.
