How to Build Your Team
Age eligibility: 11-17
Team size: 3-7 students
Build your team profile
Review your team’s mission, vision, philosophy, and core values. Current guiding principles should:
Reflect the team’s culture and standards
Present the team in a clear and honest way
Be in-line with the team’s goals for the future
Be revised if they do not satisfy all of these requirements
Identify if you need funds to deliver your goal, source in-kind donations, and set up a fundraising plan if needed. Before starting to fundraise we encourage you to explore if you can get these items donated. Often the most successful teams are those that managed to source most equipment required for projects for free. Once you have worked out what you need to buy and cannot get via donations, this creates a target for you to fundraise. You should then decide what activities you want to do to raise funds. Most projects can be implemented with very little, if any, funding.
Please note, you should NOT have fundraising as the main target/goal, instead you should be focused on tackling an issue that you can have a direct impact on.
