Dream Building at Château Élan is the next level of team-building and motivational events that strengthen and make a lasting, positive impact on your team and your world.
Dream Building events build on the natural lessons learned from volunteering and apply those lessons to current business initiatives. These are socially responsible programs designed to give businesses a platform to give back to the community and also receive the benefit of a customized teambuilding event. These programs not only reward participants for their volunteering efforts but also improve their performance at the workplace.
Château Élan will facilitate and manage your next Dream Building event through many local non-profit and charity organizations to present an experience that combines good social responsibility with highly professional teambuilding concepts. The end result is so much more that just building your team, it also provides a range of help to feed local families in need, provide children with shoes or bikes they are unable afford, or help maintain local parks and trails. We call it DreamBuilding.

IMPACT stands for Intentionally Making Powerful Acts Collectively Today. IMPACT initiatives allow companies to work alongside a representative to plan, organize and implement the perfect DreamBuilding initiative. Your participants will be encouraged to THINK about others, to RECOGNIZE the importance of giving and assisting when made aware of needs and to REFLECT on how making an IMPACT is available everywhere and all the time.
The following are just examples. If none of the following resonate, work alongside us to discover the right opportunity. We are constantly made aware of community needs.
Consider the following: 96 billion pounds of food are wasted in the USA every year. Food banks help store and distribute that food to those who need it. A total of 36 million Americans — including 12 million children live on the brink of hunger — and the numbers are rising. In Northeast Georgia 20% of our people are at risk of hunger and 12% of those are children under 18. For many families having access to free food means that can meet their health care needs or pay their power bills. In Northeast Georgia approximately 21% of people live at or below the federal poverty level. Nearly 50% of children in Hall County alone are in these low income families. That equates to 22,000 hungry children today.
Many NPO’s and local parks would benefit from ‘upgrades’ of pathways, picnic tables, landscaping, playsets, etc. Your group can design a competitive or cooperative DreamBuilding event that culminates with your participants meeting a tangible need in the Northeast Georgia area. Expect to ‘play-safe’ have fun and learn something useful!
