Volunteering is one of America’s most enduring traditions, and while its importance is often most visible in the wake of crises, it is on a daily basis that communities are most powerfully transformed by the service of caring citizens.
HandsOn Broward's Youth Impact Awards
HandsOn Broward’s Youth Impact Awards recognizes the outstanding young people who not only engender positive change, but sustain it over time through thousands of locally driven community initiatives. These young changemakers show that there isn’t an age limit when it comes to making a difference. The Youth Impact Awards will celebrate a group of young volunteers between the ages of 5 and 18 for their extraordinary service to their community and volunteer activities.
We look forward to celebrating their tremendous impact at the inaugural Youth Impact Awards, presented by HandsOn Broward.
