EDGE on Wheels

Explore this Area

“The EDGE activities are a wonderful way for students to become comfortable with each other in preparation for group work, in which we engage fully through NCC learning communities. Students who do not necessarily speak up in class are drawn into the activities and sometimes emerge as unlikely leaders, unveiling hereby unknown potential.”

– Assistant Professor, George Mason University

EDGE on Wheels is a team building program that George Mason University brings to you. Our staff will travel to your site bringing customized portable equipment. The hands-on program will simultaneously engage participants and allow them to learn about themselves, those around them, and their teams or organizations.

Universities – We offer team and organizational learning programs for university and student groups focused on improving leadership, teamwork, and communication through group-based activities. Our programs appeal to department leaders and staff, student activity groups, athletic teams and clubs, classes, and other organizations.

University programs are available in 4 hour or multiday blocks customized to your needs.

FACILITY REQUIREMENTS

For all programs, your organization will need to provide an appropriate space where groups of 8 – 150 people can comfortably gather with some “elbow room” for activities. For example:

  • Professional Organizations – large conference rooms with removable furniture, hotel conference spaces, flat grass outdoor spaces, etc.
  • Schools/Universities – gymnasiums, drama rooms, field houses, large stages in auditoriums, etc.
  • Community Groups – indoor or outdoor space, meeting rooms, reservable park facilities, etc.
