The mission of the Team Up campaign is to unite at-risk youth in the global battle against HIV/AIDS. Using effective sports-based curricula, Team Up hopes to facilitate a cultural exchange between middle school-aged children in Washington, DC and Soweto, South Africa where they can share information about their lives, passions, and goals for the future. With the love of soccer as a uniting factor, Team Up hopes to inspire at-risk youth to educate themselves and each other about HIV/AIDS risks and prevention techniques and to share what they have learned with their families, friends, and communities.
