TeamWorks Teams Up for the Community

Dedicated blog readers may remember a post on TeamWorks a few months ago. The latest session of TeamWorks 101 concluded last week, and it was a complete success! This edition of TeamWorks focused on the issue of education, and included several projects for the volunteer team to work on together. The team began with a kickoff project making bookmarks together for Homework Helpers, then decided to head outdoors to work on Challenge Ranch, an organization dedicated to providing outdoor opportunities for under-privileged children. Together they repaired trails, trimmed the trees, patched up the horse corral, and had a blast the whole time. After successfully working at the Ranch, they headed back to the classroom to teach a group of children at the boys and girls club ways to prepare for the next disaster.

Throughout the TeamWorks Series, the team kept a strong vision to make a difference in their community. Despite the difficult scheduling and the obstacles the team faced, they came together and pulled through with a strong sense of teamwork.

After four months of committing themselves to service the team can claim many accomplishments. They educated 13 people about the issues at hand, completed 4 projects at Challenge Ranch, and instructed 8 children on ways to prepare for a disaster. Combined they completed over a hundred hours of service to the community! Way to go guys!
