Getting Started with Adopt a Cause

Onboarding is important, for both the staff of the nonprofit and that of the host. Here is the activity She's the First and The New York Foundling organized to foster team building. 

It's simple to organize:

Invite the employees of your company and the nonprofit to an afternoon snack break. Have them flip through magazines and tear out words and images that represent what they want Adopt a Cause to achieve. Each participant creates a collage that they present to the group. Attach each person's collage to a presentation board that can be on display in your office throughout the year.

Here's all you need:

  • Magazines 
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Markers and stickers, if desired
  • Construction paper
  • Presentation board
  • Snacks
