Letting young people know their actions make a difference.

Grad is in the air, and United Way volunteers have the pleasure of awarding lots of Youth United Student Community Service Awards at this time of year.

Student Community Service Award.

Participating schools choose one Grade 11 student from among the student body whose actions and volunteer spirit reflect United Way’s philosophy of creating opportunities for a better life for everyone. Award recipients are acknowledged for setting an example by volunteering, connecting with others in their community, and motivating other students to get involved.

Some schools get their awards in the fall, and we’ll award the rest of the winners then, along with a reception to congratulate and highlight these committed young people for their good work.

The award is sponsored by our friends at Great West Life.
