Each year thousands of Boston youth come to Thompson Island to discover who they are and all they can become. Through Thompson Island’s Corporate Partnership Program, we develop dynamic and customized partnerships that directly support the students of Boston while aligning with your company’s goals for civic participation, professional development and team building, employee engagement, and increased corporate visibility in the marketplace.
Many companies identify a variety of ways to collaborate with us. Opportunities to sponsor an individual student, class, entire school grade or even a whole school are also available. For more information contact Sarah Swanson.
Put your intellectual muscle to work on our Board
We value the expertise and guidance from corporate partners who join our Board of Trustees or Board of Advisors. Use your industry and personal talent to serve youth from Boston’s most underserved neighborhoods.
Build your employees’ community engagement and civic participation
The Corporate Volunteer Program offers a deeply satisfying day of service for employees to engage in our mission by maintaining the island’s natural resources, trails and beaches. Service projects are intended for groups of up to 50 employees and can be scheduled from April through October.
Enter a team in the annual 4K Trail Run for a different kind of team building
This race brings 2,000 runners from Boston’s top companies out to Thompson Island. Companies sponsor a team of employees who enjoy an evening of running, fundraising and celebrating together. The race is followed by awards, a delicious BBQ, beer, and sunset cruise back to downtown Boston.
This fundraising dinner brings together 500 community-minded corporate employees and local philanthropists to celebrate the thousands of young people participating in Thompson Island Outward Bound education programs each year.
