Most companies know that giving back to the community is more than just a responsibility, it’s a chance to show that the company and its employees genuinely care about being part of a community. It’s great when you can plan corporate social responsibility team building activities that are really fun. It’s impactful when people are enthused about the activities they’re participating in.
Corporate Social Responsibility Ideas
If you’ve ever considered social responsibility team building, I’m sure you know about build-a-bike. The program’s been around for some time now. It’s real team building because groups have to work together to build bicycles, requiring communication and utilizing group skill sets to get a job done. It’s great as part of a community giving program because after you build your bikes you give them to deserving children. The giving part of the program is emotional, in a great way.
The Gift of Song
Many public schools across the country are in need of arts funding and musical instruments. To help answer that need, Kidbilly Music, (full disclosure – my company), designed a program that allows you to participate fully in our musical team building activity while enriching the arts curriculum in schools across the country. We want to be able to facilitate this community giving team building program program more often.
Here’s how it works:
- We’ll work with a school organization and your group to develop a wish list for needed musical instruments.
- At your event, the students will join your program after you’ve created your songs.
- We’ll invite students to be a part of your team song performances.
- After the performances, you will present the students with donations of musical instruments or funding toward arts education.
With corporate social responsibility focused team building activities, you can have your cake and eat it too. You can benefit from group fun and productive team building, while enriching the lives of others.
