Remember the Wordless Wednesday question we posted on the hump-day?
We asked: “According to the National Retail Federation, how much money have families with school-age children been projected to spend on preparing for back to school?”
I’m sure the parents out there remember this question. I doubt they’d be shocked at the answer either. Read on for our Tools for Schools program!
Those of you who guessed $625 receive an “A” for the day. Hardly a guess – according to The Baltimore Sun, parents live up to this quota to cover clothing, notebooks, calculators, and anything else on the back-to-school list, per child.
As reported by The National Center for Education Statistics, 50.1 million children will be enrolled in public schools this fall. Multiply that number by the average bill of $625, and we have a nation of parents with loose pockets.
The United States is recognized worldwide for the educational opportunities we provide to our youth, but there is no doubt that a significant number of parents struggle to support their children’s educational endeavors – whether that be art supplies, technology and books needed for honors courses, or college tuition.
For those of you looking to host a team building program for you and yours, one of the best feelings an organization can feel as ONE is the feeling of giving back. Why not give back to the future generations who could be leading your organization someday?
As a part of TeamBonding’s Corporate Social Responsibility Team Builder series, our Tools for Schools program is a fun, interactive, and productive way to not only bring your team closer together, but unite them toward a common goal of helping your local community.
Tools for Schools is a hands-on team building event challenges your teams to fill a backpack with vital school supplies, including notebooks, pencils, erasers, and more. But it’s not as easy as picking up the items and putting them in the bag – your teams need to earn their items through creative mental and physical team challenges that require teamwork, effective communication, and a willingness to roll up their sleeves and get involved.
Give others the opportunity to learn, while you learn something new about yourself and your coworkers.
How do you give back to the youth in our country? Participate in a Tools for Schools program today!
