Started by former NY Islander, current NHLPA Business/ Communications Advisor, and an active youth sports advisor Steve Webb, Team Up 4 Community (TU4C ) is proud to announce the 2013-2014 School Year L.I. Impact Report.
As we all know, many athletes support philanthropic initiatives that aim to benefit their communities, which make up the backbone of North America. With TU4C, we are continuously creating an environment where our youth athletes and others care about their communities and the importance of being socially responsible.
Since the launch of TU4C in May 2012, TU4C have recorded over $2 million dollars in community service work performed by our youth athletes across North America. In Long Island alone this school year, TU4C has reached close to 6,000 youth athletes participating in over 32,000 hours of community service work. This is valued at over $233,000 given back to our L.I. Communities.
TU4C is a powerful platform that is propelling community service work through athletes here on L.I. as well as across North America. We provide a fun and competitive environment that engages youth athletes in participating in community service work, particularly through our interactive map and online community service video challenges.TU4C also provides online education that teaches the value of HOW and WHY as an athlete it is important to giveback. We then equip the athletes with the necessary online resources to lead impactful community service projects.
