Internal Volunteer Group Initiatives

Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC)

Group activities organized by employees who share interests and abilities

Volunteer groups allow TMC employees who share similar interests, abilities and goals to enjoy putting them to use for the good of the community. One of the groups, known as JDR Toyota, dedicates itself to planning fun volunteer events, while another group, Toys Repairers, organizes toy repair events where the members fix broken children's toys and let them recognize the importance of taking care of their things. The 12 different groups that interested TMC employees currently belong to also enjoy interacting with members of their local communities, such as by visiting with people in nursing homes.
