Major League baseball players and Action Team participants Curtis Granderson and C.J. Wilson are sharing time management tips with high school students, as the Action Team national youth volunteer program launches first of five weekly blogs featuring back to school tips on www.ActionTeam.org.
Remaining weekly blog topics include setting goals, getting organized, developing sound study habits and getting involved. Each weekly blog will include contributions from a variety of Major Leaguers.
You can access the blog here.
In 2003, the Major League Baseball Players Trust and Volunteers of America created the Action Team national youth volunteer program to recruit and train high school students to become volunteers in their communities. Major Leaguers help inspire and encourage high school students to serve as Action Team Captains, who in turn deliver an important message to their peers: volunteering is cool, fun and personally rewarding.
Through the Action Team, more than 65,000 high school students have helped more than 205,000 of their neighbors in need. This free program is available to high school students everywhere. In fact, there are presently more than 100 high schools across the United States, including Hawaii, and Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and as far away as Japan, enrolled in the program.
Courtesy of the Major League Baseball Players Trust and Volunteers of America, Action Teams receive free T-shirts, posters, brochures and exclusive on-line resources to support their efforts to encourage others to get involved. To learn more, visit www.ActionTeam.org.
