Corporate volunteering provides businesses with the opportunity to enhance company culture, develop staff skills, build cohesive teams and bolster your reputation within your local community.
Kickstart for Kids offers opportunities for corporate teams across South Australia to get involved and help change the lives of disadvantaged kids in a range of ways, including:
• Making breakfasts and lunches
• Camp KickStart
• Fundraising activities.
Corporate volunteering has a positive impact on employees – the social contribution made through using existing skills to benefit others increases staff self-esteem and confidence. Volunteering also helps to develop your employee’s leadership, problem-solving and decision-making skills, which can be brought back into the workplace.
Finally, it feels GOOD to help others and see that your effort makes a difference to the lives of disadvantaged kids in need! When people feel good about what they do, their health and wellbeing improve, which is good for your business.
