What is the Young Adult of the Year Service Award?

 

The Young Adult of the Year Service Recognition Award, initiated in 2014, is a competitive award program offered annually to recognize an outstanding Young Adult (in his or her 20’s or 30’s), or group of Young Adults, for exceptional voluntary mission-related and/or community outreach service work.

Originally intended to recognize volunteer service within the Diocese of New York, the program has expanded to include volunteer service for ministries recognized within the Episcopal Dioceses of Connecticut, Long Island, Newark, New Jersey, or New York, making it a regional competitive award program.

The Award is accompanied by a $1,500 honorarium, of which $1,000 is designated to the awardee and $500 to the church or community ministry.

Applicants may apply for the Young Adult of the Year Service Recognition Award directly, or applicants may be nominated. The deadline for submitting applications is April 28th for consideration for the current year’s annual Award.
