Christmas Wishing Tree
The holidays are usually full of excitement and happiness, but for many of the young people at Lighthouse this time of year brings up a heady mix of emotions, as they are reminded of Christmas and holiday memories both happy and painful. A Christmas Wishing Tree will be given to your workplace to be placed in the reception or communal area to raise awareness and gain assistance in sourcing gifts for our young people within the homes. Our annual collection of gifts for our young people is a great way to build community and give at the end of the year. In December you will also be invited to our annual gift-wrapping days held at our Youth Resource Centre in Richmond. A fun team-building activity, with carols and snacks provided.
Walk Letterbox Drop or House Gardening Engagement Activities
They say it takes a village to raise a child, and the youth within our Lighthouse homes are no different. We invite you to engage your team and be a part of our village! We have a variety of volunteer engagement needs at each of our homes located across Melbourne, from flyer letterbox drops to garden maintenance. Depending on your preferred location, and what is needed for each of our homes, there are opportunities to get hands-on and outside in the fresh air whilst connecting with teammates and giving back. We make these activities fun, engaging, and rewarding for your organisation, with an excellent sense of team accomplishment!
Website Listing & Lighthouse Logo use
We’d love to recognise our partnership more formally and put your name up in the lights! (Well, Lighthouse lights at least!). We will list your company’s logo on our website alongside our other Supporting Partners and Major Partners. We will also provide you with a Lighthouse Foundation logo specifically created for our Corporate Partners to use as you choose on your website or email signatures. This is a great way to share your company’s support for Lighthouse with your clients and stakeholders also.
Lighthouse CEO or our Founder Talk
“Stories create community and enable us to see through the eyes of others, and open our world to ideas”. There’s no greater inspiration than hearing the journey and lessons of someone less fortunate in order to gain perspective and drive in our own lives. Our CEO or Founder would love to share enlightening and real-life stories with your organisation, or at an annual event in support of our collaboration as partners.
Workplace Culture & Leadership Workshop or Train for Change Outdoor Workout
Struggling to stay connected and maintain organisational culture, trust, and relationships in a zoom-orientated world? This workshop is fun, educational, and interactive. Held at your work premise and is designed to build strong connections with teammates as well as harness team excellence. We facilitate a variety of activities which ultimately promote organisational culture, relationships, and shared work ethics within teams. Train For Change gives the opportunity for your company to improve the mental and physical health of your team. Held outdoors at a location of your choice, this cooperative session is planned to instil team-building qualities through partnered or grouped workouts. Each workout aims to challenge cognition and competitiveness through the various activities, helping to improve core principles of a synergistic SQUAD.
Feed Our Family Cooking Workshop
Get out of the office and into the kitchen! This hands-on cooking workshop is held in a commercial kitchen preparing meals for both your team and the Lighthouse homes to enjoy. Cooking as part of a team stimulates creativity, laughter, and comradery when doing something together to help others in need. Including a Chef-led cooking class, fresh ingredients, recipe cards, and an opportunity to learn about food sustainability as well as the Lighthouse homes whilst cooking. After the workshop, you’ll enjoy a team lunch enjoying the food you have cooked, and the remainder of the meals will be packaged and delivered directly to our homes for the families to enjoy too!
Individual Workplace Giving
Workplace Giving is a simple way for employees and employers to regularly contribute to their community through automated payroll deductions, gaining immediate tax deduction benefits, and therefore no need to keep receipts and claim at a later date. It doesn’t take much to make a big difference. Workplace Giving is a surprisingly easy, automated, and convenient way to make tax-deductible donations to causes that you care about. Workplace giving initiatives supported by the organisation is a great way to increase workplace morale, build on collaboration and empathy in the workplace, and achieve something together. Each employee receives a gold Lighthouse Keeper keyring to resemble their ongoing support.
