“Team4Tech is an opportunity to see the work that you do applied to a purpose that is greater than the product.”
– Naveen Musinipally, Intel volunteer
How It Works
The full cost of the volunteer project, which corporate partners can choose to fully or partially cover for their employees, covers all project costs, including local accommodations, meals and transportation, but it excludes airfare, vaccinations and visas.
Projects are designed to provide a fully immersive local experience. Teams typically consist of five to twelve volunteers, with direct support from one or two Team4Tech staff.
Team4Tech can help identify nonprofit organizations that best fit the corporate partner’s skills and interests to design a tailored project.

Team4Tech works with corporate partners to recruit and select volunteers
Team4Tech provides six to eight weeks of training on project preparation and leadership development. Volunteers dedicate around four hours per week in this phase.
Volunteers spend one to two weeks at the partner nonprofit organization to implement the project, which can consist of teacher training, computer lab set-up and software installation.
Volunteers return home with a renewed perspective, increased empathy and a broader worldview. They are encouraged to share their stories with their colleagues.
Team4Tech continues to work with the nonprofit partner to ensure the impact measurement, sustainability and full integration of the program.
“The experience made me revisit what it means to be a leader.”
– Gloria Falcinelli, VMware volunteer
