Community Service is an integral part of the Interscholastic Athletic experience. Through community service, student-athletes, coaches, and administrators are able to give back to the communities that support them each and every day! 


NYSPHSAA’s Community Service Challenge is a way to:

  • Do something good your community and yourself!
  • Get your voice heard on what matters in your community and what problems should be addressed.
  • Learn effective problem solving, critical thinking, and project management skills.
  • Strengthen your academic and social skills.
  • Make academic content more relevant and practical…you get to use what you’re learning!
  • Learn about potential careers by completing a project in collaboration with a community organization.
  • Meet amazing people that you wouldn’t ordinarily get to meet. They’ll stretch the way you think about the world.
  • Gain a sense of accomplishment.

You, too, can help change the world!
