Team Building With Employee Volunteering

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has” – Margaret Mead

EV2013Summer is nearly upon us, and as the sun comes out, we shed our layers and begin venturing outdoors.

What better way to enjoy the sun than to get out of the office and volunteer as a team in the community?

Volunteer Calgary’s Paint the Town Program is a meaningful project that is partnered with the City of Calgary’s CityLinks program. The partnership provides support for seniors living independently by contributing much needed home maintenance.

Paint the Town can accommodate groups of any size, but if there are more than 20 people the group will have to be split onto two sites. What better way to team-build than a little healthy competition?

The employee groups engaged with Paint the Town can opt for either a half or full day and will have a hand in helping a senior remain independent.

This employee volunteering opportunity has been running for well for over 15 years which makes it smooth and easy to complete, there are no planning headaches with this project.

Paint the town begins May 28th and runs until the end of September.

If you are interested in something more customized and year round, build your team by volunteering as a group. Volunteer Calgary can customize an employee volunteering opportunity for any date, group size or organization’s interests and needs.

It can be a half day or run over multiple days, and is nicely suited for an organization that wants their employee volunteering time to align with their business strategy.
