Volunteer with us as an alternative team building experience!
We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities for corporate groups. Your team can share your knowledge and expertise by leading a legal, financial, health or other skill based workshop, help out Volunteers of America's programs by hosting a fundraiser, sponsor a beautification or maintenance project at one of our residential facilities, host one of our monthly birthday parties, an ice cream social, a holiday celebration, or other event at one of our residential facilities, or coordinate a donations drive.
According to Business Insider (May, 2011): "Corporate volunteerism helps improve job satisfaction among employees, but it also provides benefits to employers in the form of an enhanced corporate image, a more positive corporate culture, and better financial results."
Benefits for corporations volunteering include:
- Changing the lives of individuals in need by giving them an opportunity to live a more healthy, well-rounded life
- Increased morale and teamwork among employees
- Enhanced image of corporate good citizenship among employees as well as in the larger community
- Make a lasting, positive impact on the local community
