North Carolina Community Outreach Challenge!

The North Carolina Outreach Challenge is an annual competition among all DPT and PTA programs in North Carolina. The challenge is simple, compete with one another throughout the year to accumulate the greatest number of community service hours!

Once a program has completed a community service event, a simple form must be completed each time, and submitted to the NC SSIG.
