Team for Tomorrow is a community outreach program that provides a vehicle through which U.S. athletes can offer their assistance and support to those in need around the world, as well as a means to continue spreading the Olympic Values of excellence, friendship and respect. Through this initiative, U.S. athletes offer assistance and support in the form of donations, volunteerism, disaster recovery support, advocacy and other contributions to communities.
Today's Olympians and Paralympians have expressed a deep interest in humanitarianism - in giving back through a wide variety of social and civic causes. America's athletes are looking for ways to make a difference in the world and to gain an even deeper meaning out of representing the United States as an Olympic or Paralympic athlete.
The 2016 program brings a new class of 15 athlete ambassadors to help lead the charge serving as philanthropic captains of the 2016 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic teams. They act as advocates and champions of the effort by spreading awareness about Team for Tomorrow's causes and leading the way through volunteerism and goodwill. The newest ambassadors to join Team for Tomorrow represent several sports on the Olympic and Paralympic programs. They will educate their U.S. teammates about the program, while at the same time giving back through visits at local multi-sport organizations in their hometowns and training communities.
