AYF Service Awards
During the dinner Auction on Sunday, May 5, it is our privilege to recognize and honor two individuals and a community partner who support the mission and work of the AYF. The recipient of the Enkindled Spirit Award is immersed in the American Youth Foundation experience and finds the motto of “My Own Self, At My Very Best, All The Time” as a source of inspiration though out life and how they give back the AYF. This individual has shown that the motto is not just words, but a way of life in their unwavering support for the AYF.
The recipient of the Visionary Award goes to an individual whose shared work represents the American Youth Foundation’s mission to discover and develop their personal best, to seek balance in mental, physical, social and spiritual living, and to make a positive difference in their communities and in the wider world. The recipient of this award is a true champion of youth.
The Community Empowerment Award goes to an organization whose humble service to the American Youth Foundation has helped fuel a mission focused on empowering youth to discover and develop their personal best, to seek balance in mental, physical, social and spiritual living, and to make a positive difference in their communities and in the wider world.
