Volunteers and Partnerships

TeamUP Volunteer & Partnership Council

The TeamUP Volunteer & Partnership Council is most fortunate to have an enthusiastic, energetic and dedicated group of men and women serving as the Board of Directors. We are an active board that works closely with the school district Volunteer & Partnership Coordinator to strengthen and promote school volunteerism and business partnerships in Sarasota County Public Schools. 

Mission: Assist stakeholders in forming partnerships with family, community and businesses to enhance highest student achievement.
