Team Building
Are you wanting to hone a particular skill, like problem solving or communication? Or do you simply want to have fun with your group and get to know each other better?

Whatever your goals are, we can help you pick an activity based on your team's needs.

Our high-energy, fun activities are perfect for those who enjoy getting active and we have a wide variety of scalable options for people of all physical abilities.

For groups wanting stretch their mental muscles, strategic team building activities can provide an opportunity to think critically outside of the box. These are great for quick-witted groups who enjoy brainteasers and strategy-focused games.

Activities that have a construction theme give participants a chance to build something tangible with their hands, while collaborating creatively as a team. The “Inter-ACTION arena” is set up with of a number of games and activities to encourage various aspects of teamwork.

INFO-DEMNITY 

The President’s Award for Youth Empowerment (TPA) is affiliated to The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award for Young People and is a full member of the International Award Foundation which oversees the Award Programme in over 130 countries globally, with 18 of these being in Africa, and over 1.3million active participants internationally. TPA is a registered non-profit organisation (004-920NPO) with Public Benefit Organisation status, registered with SARS (PBO#930001329). TPA motivates young people to develop character, discover their purpose and determine their future to contribute towards building a great South Africa. The Award Programme targets 14-24 year olds across the socio-economic spectrum, from public and private schools, children’s homes, correctional services centres, universities, etc. On the Programme, there are three levels; Bronze, Silver and Gold. Within those levels there are four sections:
  1. Skills Development
  2. Physical Recreation
  3. Service to the Community and
  4. an Adventurous Journey
On the Gold level there is an additional section called a Residential Project. With guidance from volunteer adult Award Leaders, each young person builds confidence by reflecting upon their interests, abilities and ambitions to set themselves challenges. Youth Participants progress at their own pace through the three Award levels; however, each level has minimum requirements. At completion of the Award, young people get an internationally recognised certificate that bares the signatures of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip and President Cyril Ramaphosa. The certificates are recognised by employers and universities.
