CYO Community Service Challenge 2019
For the 2019 Volleyball Season, CYO of Long Island has Partnered with the W20 Foundation’s Project Team Up 4 Community to encourage Youth Athletes to give back to their communities through the CYO Community Service Challenge!
CYO of Long Island was established in 1958 to provide athletic opportunities to children of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Since then they have grown to serve over 25,000 children a year across Long Island. Their programs include basketball, chess, soccer, swimming, volleyball, and track. Their new initiative, CYO Steadfast, is designed to bring athletics to the neediest in our communities while also providing educational and nutritional support.
From February 1st, 2019 to April 30th, 2019, CYO Volleyball teams from 5th to 12th grade can participate in the CYO Challenge by uploading a community service project to www.TeamUp4Community.org
The TU4C Website features an online interactive dashboard that will consistently tally the hours contributed by athletes from Parishes throughout Long Island.
The winning Parishes will be chosen by:
- Most Community Service hours / per athlete as of May 1st
- Most Creative Community Service Project
- Most Positive Social Media Presence
Winners will be acknowledged at the 2019 Volleyball Sportsmanship Awards Night
