Team building is a priority around here, but we’re equally committed to creating exciting new pathways for corporate giving as well. When we noticed a pattern in client requests where the priority was two-fold, we took action.
More and more, companies come to us for more than just team building: they want to give back to their communities too.
While better teamwork is always a goal, there is a strong, growing demand for a new kind of workshop event: one that focuses on allowing participants to create something together and build community connections through giving.
Introducing our newest type of charity workshop: Charity Giving Stations. We took the “best of the best” elements from each of our charity team building workshops and combined them into a total charity event for corporate groups ready to dig in and do great things.
We don’t think of it as sacrificing team building opportunities. We think in terms of upping the CSR quotient! In fact, Corporate Social Responsibility events like our Charity Giving Stations go hand-in-hand with teamwork: it’s built right in!
Here, the emphasis is purely on creating, networking and building something together. The endpoint of it all is a team donation to a charitable group in your local community. Team bonds are strengthened throughout the hands-on activities as participants come together to complete their projects. Team building skills are drawn upon too, for completing tasks cooperatively.
One thing you’ll notice during a Charity Giving Stations workshop is the constant hum of activity. Participants get involved quickly and move between stations to build their donation items, all the while meeting new people and forming new bonds. There’s a reason why we call this a “networking event!”
You can customize your own Charity Giving Stations, too. Just browse our growing list of charity team building workshops and choose the donation you’d like.
Participants circulate from station to station in order to assemble donated items – bicycles, stuffed animals, wagons, and care packages, just to name a few. Facilitators work the room answering questions and making sure everyone finishes on time – and most importantly, making sure everyone is having fun!
