As part of its 18th annual Social Responsibility Day, Convergint gave back to 18 schools through its STEP Up for Schools initiative. The goal of this program is to increase safety and security in K-12 schools, especially those in underserved local communities. As a global systems integrator, Convergint is in a unique position to step up and make a difference in local communities through its colleagues’ experience, talents, and connections. 

Convergint colleagues donated time and materials to Singing Hills and Running Creek elementary schools in Denver, CO by upgrading their security system and enhancing landscaping. This project was featured by ABC Denver in a recent newscast, featured below. 

I think there’s a greater awareness about school security, and there is a lot of processes that have been put into place and best practices that have been learned. As a whole, I would like to think that [schools] have become safer, but I think there’s probably a long way to go, and it really involves the entire community to be engaged.

About STEP Up

Enhancing school security can provide a vital level of protection for students, faculty, and visitors. In that spirit, Convergint created its STEP Up initiative to help strengthen security in our schools. This program was launched during Convergint’s annual Social Responsibility Day. Convergint colleagues went out into their local communities and provided underserved schools with interior and exterior security systems installations, security upgrades, and security assessments.
