Team Impact Days
Due to extremely high interest in our Team Impact Day service, we are currently not in a position to plan or take on any additional Team Impact Days for the remainder of 2019. If you are interested in using our Team Impact Day service in 2020 we would love for you to contact us in January and hopefully we can work together at that time to plan and organise a Team Impact Day starting in January. Sorry if this causes any inconvenience.
Volunteer Ireland can work with your company to identify opportunities for your employees and support you in the delivery, co-ordination and evaluation of high-impact and memorable projects. Volunteer Ireland matches teams of employees with not-for-profit groups for unique and meaningful community volunteer days.
About Team Impact Days
Team Impact Day projects usually take place over a full day and may take the form of practical opportunities such as gardening, painting, refurbishment, environmental restoration. Your volunteers might paint a local community centre, improve a garden at a senior citizen’s residential complex or refurbish a school science lab.
Volunteer Ireland will source a project for your team, carry out site visits, detail the project tasks and outcomes, source all materials, arrange for all tools and materials to be ready at the host organisation when you arrive. We will then lead and advise your team through out the day to make sure the project is completed to a high standard.
Our focus is on quality. We aim to provide your employees with a high quality volunteer experience while ensuring we have a positive and measurable impact on the cause or community being supported.
If you are interested in a Team Impact Day for your team let us know and we will send on our list of available projects.
We mostly work with smaller community organisations who do not have the financial or human resources to complete vitally necessary works. In most cases a project simply will not get completed without the support of a company and their employee volunteers. This makes Team Impact Days hugely impactful for the communities we support and very rewarding for the volunteers.
If you are a charity or community organisation who would like to welcome a corporate volunteering group to tackle a project, please contact Terri O’Brien at email@example.com.
To complete a Team Impact Day your company will need to provide a budget to cover the costs of the materials and tools required to complete the hands on project.
There is also a project management fee for Volunteer Ireland’s project management services.
The costs for a standard Team Impact Day with up to 15 volunteers are €900 for materials and a €600 project management fee. Material costs may vary depending on the project you select.
For larger groups projects will be priced at up to €100 per volunteer which covers materials and management.
A Fully Managed Service
Our experienced team will manage the entire project; determining the scope of the tasks, sourcing and ordering supplies and tools, conducting risk assessments, leading the project on the day and ensuring project goals are completed to the highest standard.
Our staff members have extensive experience leading company volunteer days, achieving project goals in a timely manner and ensuring the project has a positive impact on both the charity, its service users and your employees.
Our staff have a wealth of knowledge on managing painting, gardening and refurbishment projects along with horticulture and design qualifications which means we are happy to develop planting plans and interior finishes for your project.
