A group of high school students who come together to organize and plan volunteer events in their community is referred to as an action team. These teams usually receive support from Volunteers of America and Major League baseball players.
Action teams work towards improving the lives of other members of their community who are in need. These members include underprivileged families and kids and also senior citizens. More than 100 high schools across the United States have operational action teams, according to voa.org, as of 2015.
An action team can equip a student with essential life and job skills, to be utilized in future. The captain of the team, in most instances, qualifies for various college scholarships. The community service experience received from an action team can also be a great plus when applying for colleges.
