Social Awareness / Community
About U will teach and emphasize the ability of our student athletes to take the perspective of others from diverse backgrounds and cultures, to understand social and ethical norms for behavior, and to recognize family, school, and community resources and support. We will also be active in the community and promote community service.
Social awareness is the ability to take the perspective of and empathize with others from diverse backgrounds and cultures, to understand social and ethical. The AU Team will foster an environment of social awareness, have guest speakers, field trips and etc.
Community service is work done by a person or group of people that benefits others. It is often done near the area where you live, so your own community reaps the benefits of your work. You do not get paid to perform community service, though sometimes food and small gifts, like a t-shirt, are given to volunteers.
Community service can help any group of people in need: children, senior citizens, people with disabilities, English language learners, and more. It can also help animals, such as those at a shelter, and it can be used to improve places, such as a local park, historic building, or scenic area as well. The AU Team will encourage and organize community service, such as a place of worship, school, or non-profit organization.
