Choose Your Own Community Adventure

Vynamic gives back to the communities in which we live and work through our spotlight program, Choose Your Own Community Adventure (CYOCA). Vynamic supports our team members’ individual passions to engage with the Philadelphia and Boston communities and celebrates the team’s volunteering by making a financial contribution to each individual cause. CYOCA grows each year, exposing us to new and rewarding experiences along the way.

Thrive London

For their first ever “Choose Your Own Community Adventure”, the London team volunteered with Thrive, a charity that uses gardening to bring about positive changes in the lives of people living with disabilities or ill health, or who are isolated, disadvantaged, or vulnerable. By helping in the Old English Garden at Battersea Park the team gained great insight into social and therapeutic horticulture while positively impacting their community.

Children’s Village

Vynamic Philadelphia was proud to partner with Children’s Village for a 5th CYOCA event with this impactful organization. On that day, students from Children’s Village received a tour of the Vynamic offices and were then paired up with Vynamic Volunteers for a minute to win it challenge! In keeping with their summer theme of “Sports from Around the World”, students learned teamwork, bracket style tournaments, learning (and challenging) game rules, and friendly competition. Mary Graham, Executive Director of CV says, “Vynamic continues to offer engaging experiences to our students, including welcoming them into its incredible Center City Philadelphia workplace. The children and teachers are still abuzz about how much fun they had. Many of our students are from low-income families and we know that these children are much less likely than their more affluent peers to benefit from quality academic enrichment. Vynamic is enhancing the lives of our students in such a meaningful way.” Thank you so much to all who participated!

Our Closet

The Philadelphia team partnered with Our Closet for a rewarding CYOCA event. Our Closet collects clothing donations and creates pop up shops where community members can shop for clothing and accessories for free. In addition to setting up, "selling", and cleaning up, the team met some amazing folks who were able to walk out with interview clothes, work bags, and new sneakers. Everyone left with a smile on their face.

A. I. duPont Children’s Hospital

Vynamic team members donated their time at AI duPont Children’s Hospital, one of the safest children's hospitals in the country, with some of the best doctors, nurses, and pediatric specialty care available. While there the team toured the new Kids Clubhouse, an amazing destination for patients filled with activities and games to keep them occupied and entertained during their sometimes long stays at the hospital. The Vynamic team donated new board games, slime-making kits, and puzzles for the kids to play with.

Franciscan Children’s Hospital

The Boston team came together to host a craft party for our first ever Choose Your Own Community Adventure (CYOCA) event benefitting Franciscan Children’s Hospital. The opportunity to spend time with the incredible staff and fiercely brave patients at Franciscan’s was deeply inspiring.

Career Collaborative

This year our Boston team had the opportunity to return to Career Collaborative for not only one but two CYOCA events, helping this organization achieve its mission of teaching unemployed and underemployed adults with low-income jobs how to build careers that change their lives and strengthen their families.

Girl’s Inc.

This summer's CYOCA (Choose Your Own Community Adventure) program kicked off with an energizing event with Girl's Inc. Vynamic hosted our second-ever Consulting Career Exploration workshop at our Philadelphia office, where close to 30 girls ages 10-15 had a chance to learn more about consulting, present their ideas, and choose their own Vynamic color with the help of 21 Vynamic team members.

Penn Vet Working Dog Center

For the second year in a row, the pet-loving community at Vynamic spread the love at Penn Vet Working Dog Center, a national research and development center for detection dogs, to learn about the amazing work their trainers and dogs do and help with various projects at the center.

Cradles to Crayons

This year, Vynamic's annual Cradles to Crayons "Choose Your Own Community Adventure" team helped Philadelphia-area children living in poverty by volunteering at their Giving Factory and making cards to be included in backpacks distributed at their annual Backpack-A-Thon at Lincoln Financial Field. As always, Vynamic was well represented with smiles and helping hands for such a great cause.

Team members are able to further give back to our communities through the Team Choice Awards. Each year, the team nominates and votes for two non-profit organizations to receive financial sponsorship contributions for an upcoming event. This year, Vynamic is honored to announce the following Team Choice Award winners:
