What do Team Leaders do?

The BLOCK Project is utilizing a grassroots fundraising approach of peer-to-peer fundraising. We are calling on our community to help us spread the word about The BLOCK Project while raising funds for the project over a 60-day period. As a team leader you wear many hats: Fundraiser, Project Manager, Event Organizer, Educator and Advocate.
