In keeping with the values and ideals of the Olympic and Paralympic movements, U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes partner with the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee to offer assistance and support to people around the world who are in need. For years, America’s athletes have expressed a profound interest in social and civic responsibility, and are always looking for ways to make a difference in their communities and around the world.

U.S. athletes offer assistance and support in the forms of volunteerism, advocacy, humanitarian relief and involvement in other domestic and international causes. By giving back, Team USA continues to spread the Olympic and Paralympic values of peace, understanding, friendship and respect.
