Company – Team Building & Corporate Volunteer Program

Genentech Give Back Team

Join Our Give Back Program!

Getting outdoors and experiencing nature in meaningful ways leads to happier, healthier and more productive employees. Join PBC for your Team Building activities!

The Pacific Beach Coalition welcomes partnerships with companies looking to create, build upon and/or expand their employee volunteer and team building programs.

Our corporate volunteer programs include beach cleanup, community cleanup and native habitat restoration events that offer rewarding hands-on opportunities to engage employees in team-building while giving back to the community and learning more about protecting and preserving our ocean, beaches, coastline and natural beauty we all enjoy and appreciate!

Create an Earth Hero team. Share your company’s enthusiasm, talent and passion for our beaches, native habitat, wildlife and ocean with us!

At any time during the year, we help create customized give back and team-building programs that engage employees in experiential hands-on learning and make a difference for our environment.

Feel free to check out cleanups events done by other companies!

If you are interested, sign up your group for our team building activities.

And/or send an email with your additional questions to info [at]

Thanks for allowing us to give something back to the community. Interestingly the fight against the global plastic problem is getting a lot of news this week – United nations vow to beat plastic problem. Great to have people like you facilitating events like this – you are making a huge difference!!” – Michael, Google

Thermofisher Team pausing after a great team building experience

I thought of you and our team effort the other day.  I was at a clinic and noticed all of the styrofoam cups being used to serve coffee (in a hospital). Thanks for sharing stories and how much of an impact we can collectively have as individuals. I’ll continue forward the message to my kids and others on what roles we can play to ‘Make a splash by Ending trash’! Thank you.” – Chester, Google

I learned more in one hour than I knew (about marine debris) in my whole life” – Genentech Volunteer

Nothing better than a team building experience at the beach!

I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet Lynn and she was quite passionate about the ocean environment.  I think it was an interesting and enjoyable project and got some time to chat and mix with some team members that I do not usually interact with.” – VMWare Volunteer

Science Exchange team working together to spread wood chips

Two-thumbs up!  I think the team should do service learning more than once a year.  Being able to learn first hand about a good cause and to have an immediate impact towards the good cause was very rewarding.” – VMWare Volunteer

It (the Give Back outing) was a blast. Thank you for leadership and oversight. It made me really happy to give back to the beach I love so dearly”  – Jane Myles, Head, Operational Intelligence and Innovation at Genentech
