Long Island Volunteer Enterprise is a Corporate Volunteer initiative.

How to Build A Corporate LIVE Team

The following are a few ideas to help you build a corporate team of volunteers.   LIVE is a program that will allow members of your company or organization to join in on a fun project and at the same time make Long Island a better place. You and your team pick the project that works best for you and join the magic of making things better for a not-for-profit social agency or educational, environmental or community organization.

BUILDING YOUR TEAM

  1. Select one or two team leaders- they should be energetic, excited movers that can make things happen.
  2. Decide what type of project best fits your company- environmental, social, community, or educational.
  3. Be sure to fill out your corporate enrollment form.
  4. The LIVE committee will help find the right project for your company.  
  5. Announce LIVE throughout the office with posters, brochures, e-mail, voicemail.
  6. Visit your project site.   This is very important!  Discuss with the agency or site coordinator the project and logistics of the day (such as restroom facilities, parking, food, etc.)
  7. Provide itinerary and directions to the site for all of your LIVE corporate volunteers.
  8. Purchase LIVE T-shirts for all participants with your company's logo. This is an optional item, but a great way to build team spirit and unity.
  9. Take plenty of pictures.
