NFL’s Troy Vincent & Jefferson Awards Co-Founder Sam Beard Announce Collaboration Today at National Award Ceremonies in Washington D.C.

The NFL has a long history of inspiring volunteerism and public service. The league’s Player Engagement group, led by Troy Vincent, the former Pro Bowl player and currently an NFL senior vice president, is advancing its efforts to involve youth with a strategic alliance with the Jefferson Awards. Vincent made the announcement this morning in Washington, DC at the national Jefferson Awards ceremony.

NFL Player Engagement and the Jefferson Awards will combine their respective efforts toward the PREP community (males and females under the age of 25) to further motivate, train and measure the impact today’s youth is making in their communities.  Through the Jefferson Awards Youth Service Challenge, a program that educates youth on their power to impact change individually, collectively, locally, and nationally, NFL Player Engagement will provide support and resources to participating students.
