WORKSHOP 1 / SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
The Big Give
ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY WORKSHOP
Teams are challenged to come up with the most creative and effective way to benefit a specific charity or community organisation using their time and resources. Each team will be given details of a chosen charity or community organisation. It’s then up to the team to decide how they can “Give the Biggest” using their budget, time and resources.
As the teams arrive back, each team makes a small presentation back to the group to explain where they went, what they did, and the effect this has had on the charity or organisation, and on themselves as individuals and as a team!
