Put your global citizenship into action, engage your school friends, and earn volunteer hours.
By starting a School Team, you can make a real difference in the world! By stepping forward with your classmates, 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. Schools Teams are a fun, meaningful way to connect with your classmates and friends in support of a great cause, learn about global development, and even earn volunteer hours.
Participation Criteria: Students in grades 1 to 12
