Frequently Asked Questions
How do I participate in Team Up 4 Community?
www.TeamUp4Community.org is an interactive website where we encourage athletes, teams and organizations to share their community service work and efforts. Athletes are important influential agents of change, not only in schools but in their communities at large. By showcasing the community give back that athletes provide we can inspire more people and organizations to give back.
When visiting the site you can create an account and upload your community service work. All those who participate will have their work added to the grand total that is shown on the homepage of www.TeamUp4Community.org. The Map on the homepage will highlight the community service that all Athletes, Teams and Organizations are contributing. It can be viewable by geographic areas and sport. The website also raises an athletes awareness about HOW and WHY it is important to giveback (visit ACTIVITIES Section ) plus gives ideas about what you can do to contribute to your community (visit the RESOURCES section). www.TeamUp4Community.org encourages greater participation from our youth and creates a sense of feeling good about giving back and being recognized by showcasing your efforts for others to see.
