Teambuilding activities can be especially meaningful when combined with a worthy cause. In that sense, charity team-building ideas help strengthen team bonds while giving back to the community.
There are obvious benefits of this type of activity:
- Teamwork and unity
- Time management
- Stress reduction
- Social responsibility and sustainability
- Sense of belonging and meaning
If you have no idea where to start, here are five suggestions for team-building activities you can do.
Tree planting or beach clean-ups
These are two activities that put the team in touch with nature. Excellent for promoting the ideas of environmental commitment and sustainability.
Teamwork and cooperation between participants for a common purpose, building bicycles. At the end of the activity, the bicycles are donated to a children's institution.
Building houses, helping feed, painting and even giving a little love to our four-legged friends at a kennel. And you might even find your new best friend along the way.
Cooking for a cause
Participants learn cooking techniques and all together prepare delicious and nutritious meals. In the end, the food is delivered to the most vulnerable people in the community.
Teams come together to rehabilitate or build the homes of families in need. Sometimes, volunteers may hear directly from the people whose homes they are building.
There are many other possibilities: giving blood, working with a local food bank, donating supplies to a local school, or doing fun activities with older people in a nursing home, there is a lot to do. Talk to your team and understand what type of activity they find most rewarding and inspiring.
Move Sports and your team
Move Sports can help you create a volunteer event for employees and add the benefits of being a good cause to the sports aspect.
