Team days could include tree planting, beach clean ups, writing letters to residents and clients, packing baby hampers for new parents, repairing bikes for youth programs, painting and site maintenance, wildlife rehab, microplastic surveys, food preparation for families in need, sorting and packing donations.
How long do team volunteering activities generally run for?
Typically a once-off half or full day volunteering activity with a team of 10+ corporate volunteers (during week day business hours).
How can Volunteering WA help?
By engaging with Volunteering WA, we can help you identify, plan and develop your volunteering project/activity.
Volunteering WA's corporate team will liaise with your community organisation to perform risk assessments and Job Hazard Analysis, administer registrations from attendees, organise transport, catering and PPE for the corporate volunteers, attend the activity to facilitate on the day and be a point of contact for employees on the day.
How can we ensure a successful activity for our organisation and for volunteers?
The more developed a project is, the more impact the corporate volunteers will have on your organisation. A positive experience at your organisation will ensure the corporate volunteers leave as supporters and ambassadors for your cause.
What kinds of projects could we get support with?
Corporate volunteers who participate in our skills-based program use their workplace expertise to assist a community organisation. Typical project areas include human resources, business development, strategic planning, project management, mentoring, policy and procedure creation or reviews.
How long do skills-based volunteering projects run for?
One or more corporate employees provide 8-12 hours of expert support over a period of weeks/months on a specific scope of work. Volunteering activities can be tailored to your businesses' Employee Volunteer Leave Allowances.
How can Volunteering WA help?
Volunteering WA's corporate team works with the NFP to create a specific scope of work and expected outcomes. We then source a suitable volunteer and liaise with all parties throughout the project to ensure a successful outcome.
