The Student-Athlete Advisory Council has started a one-to-one community service initiative for all athletic teams.

The council is trying to get all teams to participate in hands-on community service projects, unlike only walks or fundraisers which indirectly help those in need, SAAC senior representative Mintis Hankerson ’14 said.

All athletic teams will take part in more involved service, such as volunteering at Special Olympics.

“Athletic students can get community service hours without having to skip practice and it promotes team bonding,” Hankerson said.
