Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs can help build bonds, strengthen communication skills and boost morale while making a positive difference in the lives of people who need it most. There are the events where everyone really wins.

Build A Bike

IT’S THE BEST TEAM BUILDING PROGRAM YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE!

Take your corporate and social responsibility initiatives to the next level! Get your team in gear, armed with wrenches and enthusiasm as they race to build the ultimate human-powered, no-gasoline-needed rockets: children’s bicycles! It’s our favorite program, bar none.

For most of the children involved, typically ages 5-9, the bikes you build will be their first one ever! The charity bike build program is powerful from the outset and engages people immediately in a way that they have never experienced before! Purpose allows people to work harder and with more passion than if the work were just for themselves. Work inter-dependently working with everyone on your team every step of the way. Often we are able to coordinate children on site to accept the bikes. The smiles, the tears, the perfect team building event!


Helping Hands

When times are hard we rely on helping hands to create a community of support that will get us through. In this heartwarming philanthropic team building program, we aim to provide care kits for those in need by giving them hope, help and a little cheer

Dependent upon the crisis, these kits can be tailored to provide essential items and immediate aid to those who are affected. Helping Hands focuses on supporting those faced with sudden devastation brought on by an unexpected disaster, or battling homelessness. We’ll coordinate the donation of your completed community care kits to a labour camps or local charitable organization.


Team Teddy Bear

The Team Teddy Rescue Bear program is a charitable and fun way to bond a team. Each team has puzzles to solve, codes to decipher, and secrets to unlock to acquire the resources that they need to build a series of custom teddy bears.

Participants divide into small work teams. Each group must complete a series of games/challenges to earn team points. In the final half hour, teams use their accumulated points to purchase all parts and accessories necessary to build a high-quality teddy bear. Teams will be assembling bears of their choice by carefully stuffing them to huggable perfection. Once these furry friends are created, they are dressed in a variety of fun outfits giving them an identity of their own. Turning these bears into a toy for a child can be incredibly rewarding, the greatest challenge is to let go of these cute little ones when you have put much effort into its creation.


Cook For a Cause

In the Cooking For A Cause program, corporate teams will bond while making a meaningful and worthwhile donation of food to people in need. Your group will cook and eat food they prepare during the event, but the team building cooking classes also allow for a 3-pronged donation:

Big Picture

This problem solving activity requires that the leader choose a well known picture or cartoon that is full of detail. The picture needs to be cut into as many equal squares as there are participants in the activity. Each participant should be given a piece of the “puzzle” and instructed to create an exact copy of their piece of the puzzle five times bigger than its original size. They are posed with the problem of not knowing why or how their own work affects the larger picture. The leader can pass out pencils, markers, paper, and rulers in order to make the process simpler and run more smoothly.

When all the participants have completed their enlargements, ask them to assemble their pieces into a giant copy of the original picture on a table. This problem solving activity will teach participants how to work in a team and it demonstrates divisionalized ‘departmental’ working, which is the understanding that each person working on their own part contributes to an overall group result.

BRIDGING GAPS

Minefield or Maze

An excellent activity to see how well your team focuses and follows the lead as they manage to get all their team members come out of a mine filled maze that their opponent re-arranges every 15 minutes.

Team building games are one of the most effective ways for your team to connect, build comfort working together, and get to know each other on a personal and professional level. Your goal should be to create an environment that is fun and inspires teamwork. Stay away from games that are too challenging or stressful. A great team building game will help your employees work better together and the skills they develop will remain long after the team building game is over.
