Corporate Volunteering

Corporate Volunteering

Change for Kids works with companies of all sizes across all industries to provide meaningful opportunities for employees to impact the communities in which they live and work.

Whether your team is interested in a day of service or a recurring partnership, our employee engagement program allows corporate volunteers to make a significant difference in the lives of New York City kids. Corporate volunteering promotes a sense of community, relationship building within and across teams, and supports employee satisfaction and staff retention goals.

CFK’s opportunities are completely turn-key and customizable, and can be held:

● On-site at schools (in-person and virtually) for volunteering directly with students
● In-office hosting students for field trips (in-person and virtually)
● In-office team building activities, such as creating care packages, that benefit students
● On-site at schools, without students present, such as school beautification days

Examples of volunteer engagements include:

  • Employees and students participate in group activities that drive social-emotional learning and help kids gain self and social awareness.
  • Enhance a school’s physical environment (mural painting, refurbishing of libraries and community areas, etc) to maximize learning and engagement.
  • Students explore various careers, industries, and paths to get there through panel discussions, field trips, and interactive workshops.
  • Volunteers promote the love of literacy and creative expression through reading sessions with elementary students.
  • Let’s celebrate! Sponsor a holiday (or two or three) and bring the party to a classroom. A great way for employees to blow off steam--and see student smiles come to life.
  • Benefit a school community from the convenience of your conference room. Employees assemble care packages such as back-to-school kits and make-your-own journals.
  • Ensure students have the necessary resources to thrive. Host an office drive for winter coats, back to school items, or holiday gifts. Or check-out our general wishlist.



We look forward to partnering with you and helping your employees make change!
