Teamwork through Community Service
Team Project Events (TPEs) are an opportunity for groups and teams to participate in a combination of traditional team building activities and a community service project.
How does the Team Project Event work?
Following the team building segment, the group will split up into small Project Management teams. Each PM Team will be responsible for one part of the overall Team Project – one team might be cutting wood for the floorboards of a shed, while another team is clearing and leveling the ground for the laying of the foundation. Each team does their part, and the teams together produce the finished project.
Sample Team Project Event (TPEs)
Adventure race – your team has one day to set up and run an adventure race for middle school age racers.
Build a trail and a bridge – your team has one day to create a trail in a local park. Included in the trail must be a creek crossing (using a two log system) and a trail map.
Build a bridge – your team has one day to build a footbridge over a creek in Seneca Creek State Park.
Build a low ropes course element – your team has one day to build a low ropes course element, including trails to and from the element, and a list of activities that can be done while on the element.
