Volunteer Opportunities for Corporate Groups
Are you looking for a team building experience for your corporate group? Corporate volunteer programs allow businesses to foster a more personal link to the community by sharing their greatest asset—their people—in making a difference. Lyngblomsten staff plan and execute events that provide a meaningful experience for corporate volunteer groups, while at the same time are fun and engaging for residents and tenants as well.
Explore our year-round possibilities—from one-time opportunities to an ongoing relationship, let us work with you to find the right fit. Opportunities for volunteer groups include scheduled dates as well as flexible-date events to allow corporate groups room to navigate busy schedules.
