Corporate Volunteer Events for Intern Groups
Internships have always been a powerful tool to support recruitment, but as many companies have seen in the last year, they can be a challenge in the virtual world. Taking an intentional approach to engaging your intern groups has never been more important to keep them motivated and connected to the company and your mission.
Corporate volunteer events can help power employee retention with interns resulting in more longevity with the company and ultimately a higher return. We always say that people want to work for and buy from companies that give back and that rings just as true (if not more) when it comes to interns.
We know the challenges that come with planning corporate volunteer events and integrating these into your internship programs… that’s why we designed our volunteer events to be as easy and impactful as possible. Working with WeHero the entire experience is handled from planning to execution.
We have a variety of different causes that you can support as well as the option to create a fully customized event to match a cause or impact your organization is dedicated to. After years of planning remote volunteer experiences for internship programs, we’ve compiled a list of the most popular WeHero corporate volunteer events for interns.
As internship programs balance between fully remote, fully in-office, and any combination of those, our volunteer experiences are here to support your interns in making an impact no matter where they’re located! Check out our latest blog on the types of volunteer types we offer and our newest type, Hybrid.
Your interns will leave the experience feeling amazing about the impact they made, empowered to continue giving back, and feeling more connected to your mission and organization than before.
As an intern at NetApp, I got the unique opportunity to work behind the scenes of planning a virtual volunteer event in partnership with WeHero. It was extremely rewarding to see the event come to life and contribute to the well-known NetApp culture of giving back. Assembling education access kits, learning about the challenges that children face every day, and writing letters of encouragement were only a few highlights of the hour-long event. Although it was virtual, my group of interns was able to make a collective impact on an incredible non-profit organization, The Kids in Need Foundation. – Raelynn Caligan, Human Resources Intern, NetApp
