Creating an environment where athletes and others want to participate in community service and surround themselves with other like-minded, positive people who care about social responsibility.
Why should I get involved in My Community in Service?
Our neighborhoods, organizations, teams, schools and friends allow us to join together to collectively make a difference. We can build and strengthen our communities and our individual character by participating in community service.
Community service is a way of catching and learning good character building habits. Character is the result of the information we learn, the people we associate with, how we choose to spend our time and the type of attitude we hold. Character is the sum total of all our habits.
So if we were to catch and be taught good character we would have to be affected by the exposure to it in the right environment. One effective way to catch good character is to place ourselves in an environment that will develop desirable thoughts and attitude, motivate us and ultimately encourage us to build good habits. With Team Up 4 Community we are continuously striving to create an environment where athletes and others want to part take in community giveback and surround themselves with other like minded, positive people who care about social responsibility.
Our character is a thing alone we are responsible for forming and building. TU4C encourages all with the same belief to help share this message and continue to create a positive, exciting and supporting place for our athletes.
