Team and Community Building

Great for an entire class, student groups, faculty and staff teams or an unforgettable school-wide event

We will design and deliver a high energy, educational day that meets your group’s unique needs. Whether working with a group of middle schoolers or the administrative team of a school district, each team or community building event includes a planning phase where we do a full needs assessment and work with you to identify your goals and target objectives. We’ll then use our extensive toolkit and experience to create a program that is relevant, meaningful and impactful for your students and/or staff that can be held on or off site!

Community Building

Great for orientation events, newly forming groups, and transitioning groups. Let us build a program that enhances the values, culture and foundational principles of your school. Our community building programs are designed to foster deeper relationships that create investment, inspiration and ownership in your school community.

In addition community building events can:

  • Create a fun, memorable shared experience that participants will talk about for the entire year
  • Cultivate rapport, trust and meaningful relationships between students and/or staff
  • Establish guidelines of engagement for peer-to-peer interactions
  • Increase a sense of belonging amongst all members of your school community

Team Building

Functioning teams require a more nuanced and strategic set of tools. Let us bring the latest innovations in group development to help your group improve communication, set goals, and work together to achieve peak performance and investment. We’ll draw from the classic experiential education model of providing interactive exercises, dialogue and applied learning to give context to real life situations.

Our team building programs dig more deeply into the community building goals listed above as well as the following:

  • Clarifying goals, roles and responsibilities
  • Identifying, celebrating and leveraging personal and group strengths
