Hawks Helping Hawks

“Hawks Helping Hawks”

Through the “Hawks Helping Hawks” program of community engagement and service learning, DC Athletics, students, and staff live our value of being a part of something bigger than ourselves. Together, we impact lives and change the world. To provide the greatest impact on our communities and the most meaningful experiences for our students, “Hawks Helping Hawks” focuses our service on three primary areas: Leadership through Literacy, Healthy Hawks, and Hawks Giving Hope.

Leadership through Literacy
Leadership through Literacy is dedicated to supporting and improving childhood literacy in our local community. Student-athletes will read a book that emphasizes good character with student’s grades 1-5. The Student-athletes will begin each lesson with pre-reading steps that align with Indiana State Standards, read the story to the class, and then follow up with standard aligned post-reading steps. This allows the elementary grade students to learn important life lessons from people they admire, while improving their literacy skills at the same time.

Healthy Hawks
Continuing with our partnership with Community Hospital, Healthy Hawks participates in programs to encourage children to take part in physical activity and make healthy nutrition choices. Healthy Hawks also participates in drug and alcohol education and sexual misconduct prevention programs.

Hawks Giving Hope
There are two main priorities of the Hawks Giving Hope program. First, we provide “special experiences”, through our partnerships with the Special Olympics Indiana and Riley Children’s Hospital, to bring joy to those Hawk families who are in difficult times. Secondly, we support the specific causes and events like: MSD Community Dinner Program, Relay for Life, Riley Dance Marathon, Camp Riley, and other programs.
