Tools for Schools
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 program is a fun, interactive, and productive corporate charity work event that will not only bring your team closer together but will unite them toward a common goal of helping your local community. School supplies can be expensive, especially for middle and high school students. The Tools for Schools program provides an easy way for your team to help make a difference in your own community. This hands-on corporate charity work 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. With so many different ways to have fun and earn supplies for the kid’s backpacks, there’s something for everyone on every team to do.
And because we purchase all of the school materials used to make these kits directly from B2SI, a nonprofit whose mission is to create and support educational opportunities that enrich the lives of children, you will also be making a financial contribution to them in addition to the physical donation you make to local students.
The group can only be successful by working together, communicating effectively, identifying the strengths of team members, and focusing on their mission – helping the children.
This activity is designed to be done indoors and can be staged anywhere a room can be set up with tables and chairs. We will need a round table for every team with a seat for each team member. At the front of the room there should be a number of rectangular supply tables. There should be space within the room for participants to move around.
- Giving back to your community
- Highlighting the importance of education
- Focusing on multi-generational connections
- Increasing employee engagement
- Improving team communication
The program length and complexity will be tailored to fit your specific timeline. We’ll bring everything needed to fill the backpacks, and you are welcome to add items if your group is looking to invest even more. We can also work with a charity of your choosing and can include your corporate message into the event.
"Thanks for following up! The event went great and we had a great time! Thanks again for being so accommodating and flexible to make this happen, we truly appreciate it!”
It was an amazing day… and the team really enjoyed Tools for Schools. It meant a lot to them to help children in the community. There were many teary eyes, including mine.
Let me start by saying we absolutely loved TeamBonding’s Tools for Schools! It was light-hearted. It was fun. It gave the NPS team a nice break from reality. Kevin, our facilitator, was wonderful and the company as a whole was a pleasure to deal with.
I just wanted to reach out to say how impressed we are with your organization, and would like to give you and your team kudos for a job well done. Our Lead and his onsite team did a great job facilitating the Tools for Schools event – they were energetic, organized, professional and flexible with last minute program changes.
It was amazing! I have never seen so many of our location managers smiling. Our local school district superintendent was truly moved by the event. It was a complete and total home run!
The Team Bonding Team was OUTSTANDING. They were engaging, funny and creative. We had a blast with them and I would (and have already) recommend them to others. We will definitely use them again in the future!
The event was a huge hit! Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the games! Your facilitators, Dave and Donna, were absolutely fantastic. Thank you again to your whole team
We had a great time at our TeamBonding event! They incorporated such simple games but made them extra fun and competitive. The added bonus was helping local schools with building backpacks and donating supplies that they need for their classrooms.
Our team had a wonderful experience with TeamBonding. The Charity Backpack Build was interactive and really got people outside of their comfort zones. The friendly competition combined with giving back to our local Boys and Girls Club, made for a memorable event. From a logistical standpoint, planning the event was hassle free from start to finish, and the facilitators were organized and energetic.
"The event went great and we’ve gotten a ton of great feedback. Thanks for your team’s assistance and help!"
"It was lovely meeting you and two awesome teammates. Together, you Rocked our ABC TeamBonding Event and it was a definite highlight. I’ve received a positive response on up to our CEO Bill Davis.Thanks very much for energizing our group, while we made a difference in the community."
"Thanks so much for pulling off such a great team-building & charity event! The clients and attendees really loved it and we as planners really appreciated the level of organization and ownership you took on. Thanks much!"
"Would highly recommend! Sophie was so great to work with to put the program together and Heather (our onsite) was so good at keeping our team engaged!"
"We are thrilled with how well the event went! Truly it was such a fun and exciting afternoon – my team loved the healthy balance between team building and building backpacks. I had lots of great feedback from everyone. We truly were thrilled with their energy and enthusiasm."
