Volunteering is a great way to help others and, at the same time, improve our own experiences. Now, increase that joy by sharing it with your family, friends and co-workers.

Team volunteering delivers strength in numbers, builds community spirit and creates memorable experiences. Whether you plan a team challenge or repurpose one of your monthly team meetings as a time of service, giving back gives you the opportunity to help make change in a community and work towards something great together. Here are ways to get your whole team involved in May.

Walk, talk and collect as a team

Getting outside can be good for the body and the soul. So, whether you walk, run, or roll, create a team and get out there, knowing that every mile is in honor of one of these great causes:

It’s crafty and it’s just my type

Crafting has positive effects on your health, reducing stress, increasing cognitive ability and improving your sleep. Even if you are not crafty, we have an event for you.

No team? No problem! Here are some single player events.

Whether you participate in any of these activities or you choose from the many events available on our volunteer portal, there are plenty of ways to give back. Plus, your participation helps us reach our Citizen Verizon goal of 2.5M hours by 2025. Now that is moving the world forward for all.

Share your stories:

If you’re participating in our featured activities or any of the other events available in the volunteer portal, we want to hear about it.

  1. Take a photo of you and your family taking part in your chosen activity
  2. Post on social media with the hashtag #VTeam so we can connect with your activities
  3. Tag us @InsideVerizon on Twitter or Instagram
  4. And most importantly - Be safe, make a positive impact and HAVE FUN!

We bring new ideas to our work, we work smarter and more efficiently, and when we can, we volunteer. We are Citizen Verizon.
