Teaming for Charity
Since 1983, Venture Up and its founders - who have traveled to more than 50 countries on six continents - have supported international and local charities. Your team can become part of Venture Up's efforts to serve your local community, or people beyond our borders, with a wide range of team building programs, fundraising and promotional events.
Setting the wheels in motion for our Bike Builders program requires a devoted team. Team members must first engage in a series of fun interactive problem-solving games in order to earn the makings of what will soon become a terrific set of bikes. Tools, bicycle parts, and decorations are not enough. Teams must figure out how to build the bike, under expert direction of Venture Up leaders. Bikes are often gifted to children from 7 to 10 years old, or donated to foster children of 18 years who are about to enter the the real world, and who need wheels to get to work or school. You may choose your non-profit organization, or team up with us to find the right match. We have a variety of creative ways to surprise your recipients. Thanks to our corporate sponsors, we can also arrange delivery to locations across the U.S. or overseas.
The first, second, and third grades are the golden years to help children learn to read. Venture Up has helped introduce hundreds of children to the world of reading with its Sound Pipes team building program. We provide all of the materials for teams to build a set of special tubing devices designed to make it possible for learners to hear their voices clearly so the brain can remember it more easily. Children simply hold the tube device like a small phone near the ear while reading. No matter how quietly the child speaks, sound resonates clearly into the ear, reinforcing words, sounds, and syllables. The tubes are donated to local schools in the name of your organization, and may also be sent overseas to your desired non-profit group.
Imagine a visual team building event that takes only 2 to 4 hours to complete and the final result lasts for a lifetime! Paint Fest requires team members to hand paint a series of pre-drawn canvas panels that ultimately combine to form a colorful wall of art. The final creation is donated for exhibit at a local charity or hospital for the public to enjoy for years to come.
Venture Up has the creative resources to provide festive, productive fundraising and fitness events, designed to encourage your employees to keep and stay in shape, or involve your staff in innovative ways to serve the community.
