Team Craft Team Building

College – Youth - Family

John Jay College DebriefTeam Craft provides programs for colleges, schools, and family/friend groups. These programs are often customized adaptations of our general offerings for companies and organizations.

College / University Programs

...are typically customized for specific groups and goals. The most frequent request is to provide new student orientation programs and activities. Our activities are often the very first experience new student groups have with each other.

Here are a few examples of programs:

John Jay College Activity

City College of New York, John Jay College of Criminal Justice Honors Program
  • Team Craft provides a day long new student orientation experience for these ninety honor students that focuses on relationship building and instilling the principles of team leadership. The message to these high achievers is that they are now the presumptive leaders of their class and should take the initiative to promote inclusion and support among their classmates.
University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business Master of Finance program
  • A three day orientation program contains mostly Team Craft activities that focus on relationship building, exploring the business school building and resources, developing effective teamwork in ways that can result in successful study and project teams.
Cornell student debrief

Cornell University Johnson Graduate School of Business – J.O.E. program
  • A day long orientation experience for first year MBA students is conducted by second year students. A Team Craft facilitator takes a day before the event to develop facilitator skills among the 2nd year students, and attends the activity to coach and support debriefs that focus on how to succeed in business school. The program, affectionately called J.O.E., stands for the Johnson Outdoor Experience.

Family Programs

Team Craft custom designs programs for large extended family gatherings, often held at private family locations. We design the activity to fit the property qualities and the ages of the participants. Small teams made up of cousins and aunts & uncles aim to build bonds among the extended family members.

Activities have included customized scavenger hunts with playful activities for younger kids, and a variation of Trail Blazers that challenges teens and adults in a lightly competitive event.
