Educators & Parents

We are very pleased to announce the start of the 2022 Clemente Community Challenge for students in grades 6-8. This free program and competition provides educators and/or participating parents all the teaching materials needed to help teams of students lead their own school or community service projects.

The Clemente Community Challenge is inspired by one of the greatest athletes of the 20th century, Roberto Clemente, who was also an exemplary humanitarian. Clemente’s commitment to serve others continues through the Roberto Clemente Foundation’s mission of Building Nations of Good. The Clemente Community Challenge is designed to have young people honor Roberto Clemente’s legacy through their own school or community projects.
