For most groups the term teambuilding conjures up images of spirited tug of war and relay races, with one side claiming victory. The Ritz-Carlton VolunTeaming offers groups a new opportunity at teambuilding where it’s a win-win for everyone including the local community. VolunTeaming is the newest volunteer offering under the Community Footprints social responsibility program.

The Ritz-Carlton properties in the United States, Caribbean and Mexico offer unique VolunTeaming activities benefiting the local community. Half and full-day projects range from harvesting organic crops for donation to a local foodbank, painting murals at a local Boys & Girls Club, helping protect and preserve a historic park, and working side-by-side with members of Habitat for Humanity to transform a building site into a home.

For groups with limited time, but still wanting the VolunTeaming experience, two hour on property programs are available:

  • Bike Build for Charity: Teams compete in short, fast paced games. Earning points for bicycle parts that will be used to build bikes for a local children’s charity. More Details.

  • Welcome Home for Habitat: This teambuilding activity supports the work of Habitat for Humanity by creating worthwhile housewarming gifts for the new homeowners. More Details.

  • Go Green Racing: This teambuilding activity showcases the importance of recycling, alternative energy and green transportation while making a contribution to the local community. More Details.

  • Literacy Builders: This teambuilding activity is designed to provide motivation and enthusiasm for reading amongst local children via the assembly of bookshelves for
    donation to a local children’s organizations. More Details.
