What Exactly is Charity Team Building?

We’re in the business of helping teams perform at peak levels, but that doesn’t mean we don’t understand ROI.  In fact, the one thing we know is that team building workshops should be more than just a fun day out of the office.  You want your money’s worth so we design workshops to deliver results on many levels.

When it comes to charity team building, we know you want a way to give back to the community.  Our Minneapolis-based charity workshops offer you that choice, without sacrificing valuable work done towards improving team skills as well.  You can have it all!


Working together for a common cause boosts engagement like nothing else.

We’re not satisfied until we know each participant in our workshops has gained something valuable to take back to work.  And from years of delivering highly successful team building workshops to both small and large companies, we know the key to improving skills in a workshop setting is engagement and motivation.

Nothing boosts these two factors like adding a charitable dimension to the workshop.  When participants are united by a common cause, and the workshop is designed skillfully, all that positive energy gets funneled into productive work towards improving workplace skills.

When team members are engaged, great things happen.

Charity team building workshops can help teams with any or all of the following workplace skills:

  • communication
  • big picture thinking
  • thinking creatively
  • working with limited resources

Everyone wins with charity team building workshops.

Teams love our charity workshops because they’re a lot of fun and because they value the connections made when receiving organizations arrive to accept their donations.  Clients love charity workshops because they fulfill their corporate social responsibility initiatives.  Connections are made, skills are developed, and everyone has a great time.

  1. Challenge
  2. Activity
  3. Debrief
  4. Transfer

In the end, participants come away having created something useful and valuable for the community, while building a blueprint for future teamwork success.  Everyone wins!
