  • Volunteer work must be unpaid and not a requirement for a class or co-curricular program.

Young people must be nominated by a member of the organization they are serving, or by someone who was closely involved with the volunteer activity. The 2021 Caring Youth Award nomination form and more information can be found here.

The Caring Youth Recognition event honors the contributions of caring young people in the community. It will be held on Thursday, March 11, as a virtual event. Questions? Email Lisa Walker at
