Team Types

School Teams

Join together to fight global poverty.

Participation Criteria: Students in grades 1 to 12


Learn about global development, engage your school friends, and earn volunteer hours.


By starting a School Team, you will be supporting children and youth just like yourselves to break the cycle of poverty and move towards a brighter future. Your School Team will be helping to create lasting change in communities across Africa and Asia – improving access to education, health, nutritious food and clean water, and the opportunity for all kids to achieve their full potential.
