Program Overview

Strategic Team Challenges

Teams engage in 3-5 intensely collaborative 'active' problem-solving challenges that require strategic thinking and effective communications.

Backpack Building

Sounds easy? Guess again! Teams must successfully complete each Strategic Team Challenge to 'earn' materials for the backpacks.

Creativity & Packaging

Remember that the 'best looking package' is usually selected first! Each team will be supplied with lots of fun decorations and supplies to package the backpack. A customized and heartfelt greeting card designed by the team will inspire your recipient child.

The BIG Surprise!

Participants will think the backpacks are being delivered to the children later after the program. Instead, behind the scenes, the recipient children will be brought to the meeting venue to receive their backpacks. The kids do not know they are getting a back to school backpack and the participants are unaware the kids will be on-site. What happens? Not a dry eye in the house as the two groups are brought together for the BIG surprise!

Requirements & Logistics

Program length and complexity will be tailored to fit your specific timeline. We'll bring everything needed to fill the backpacks... you bring the tissues. The Cool Tools for School Charity Event allows you to build teamwork as you create and fill backpacks for a well deserving group of kids.

Corporate Teams manages all the work behind the scenes so you don’t have to worry about anything. Materials and supplies delivery to the chosen meeting venue; venue management and logistics/set-up; coordination with the selected recipient organization; transportation of care packages post program; integration of team objectives into the program delivery; and fine-tuning of programming to fit the timeframe and needs of your team. Your job is to show up and move into action!
