New Name!

The Katie At The Bat Team is now TEAM UP PHILLY!

OUR NAME IS NEW: Our Board of Directors chose our organization’s new name to better reflect what we do and to enhance community awareness. We kept the key word from our previous name – TEAM – to highlight our goal of uniting communities to share resources. We want girls in our programs to work as a TEAM, and move UP together.

OUR MISSION IS THE SAME: to empower girls in under-served neighborhoods of Philadelphia to lead healthy, confident and successful lives. We take a comprehensive and long-term approach, combining athletics, character development, academic support, nutrition education and leadership training with long-term mentoring from caring coaches and mentors.

Our new tagline then adds an important element: Empowering Girls to Win in Life.

As Team Up Philly, we are moving forward with a clear message and purpose.

As we start our 10th year, we are more committed than ever to providing opportunities to at-risk girls in challenged parts of our city, and hope we can count on you to continue to share this mission with us!

We look forward to sharing our progress with you, and thank you, always, for your support.
