2014 Youth Enrichment Services Award
The Volunteers of America Southeast ‘Youth Enrichment Services Award’ was established in March, 2010. The intention of the YES Award is to recognize the outstanding achievements of a senior high school student in the community. The criteria for the nominated individual is that they are an enrolled senior in high school, provide civic/church contributions, and have recommendations from a church leader and a representative from their school.
