Action Team

Action Team is a program for high school students to volunteer in their communities. There are Action Teams of student volunteers in high schools across the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii.  When you or your school join the Action Team, you’ll stand with Major League baseball players and Volunteers of America as we recruit and train thousands of high school students to make an impact in the lives of their neighbors in need. To submit an application and join an Action Team, visit http://playerstrust.org/action-team/.
