KANSAS CITY, MO – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced today that Champions of Charity, powered by Helper Helper, will be the association’s official service and volunteer management partner for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic years.
Champions of Charity is a vehicle for academic institutions, businesses, and sports teams to build unity through community service. The organization’s vision is to create an environment where giving back to the community is an integral part of student development. The Helper Helper mobile application tracks volunteer hours for all students at an institution.
Champions of Charity aligns with the NAIA’s Champions of Character® program, which focuses on character-driven athletics through the five core values of integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship, and servant leadership.
“We are thrilled to have Champions of Charity, powered by Helper Helper, as a partner to help encourage servant leadership among our NAIA institutions,” said Leigh Schenck, Vice President, Business and Product Development.
“Champions of Charity is very excited to be the official service and volunteer management partner of the NAIA,” said Andrew Nussbaum, Chief Executive Director and Founder. “We are an organization that was founded by NAIA students with the purpose of generating excitement around community engagement and service with competition.”
The 2019 Champions of Charity Service Competition will take place February 1 through April 1, 2019. This allows institutions to offer student-athletes a unique and fun experience, while strengthening community partnerships and enhancing the culture of the athletic department.
