The goal of the ALCC Youth of the Year Award Program is encourage young people to volunteer in the community they live in, to develop awareness and better understanding of the needs of their community, and to enable young people to acquire life skills and knowledge that will have a long-lasting impact on the society at large.
By fostering and rewarding volunteer community service, the ALCC aims at facilitating the emergence of responsible community leaders and to expose young people to individuals who are at a disadvantage: Socially, medically and economically.
Each calendar year, the ALCC will grand an award for each age group and a plaque recognizing the youth’s community participation. Below are the listed awards:
Applications must be submitted by December 31 of each year, as per attached application form.

Once all applications are received within the aforementioned deadline, the coordinator will forward them to the Youth of the Year Review Award Committee. The identity of the applicants will be withheld to ensure selections are made solely based on the merits of the applications.
The Review Committee shall consist of one ALCC board member and two participants from the community to select a winner from each age group.
SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION
The Award Review Committee within 5 days of receipt of the applications will select the most deserving applicants from each age group and notify the Board of Directors of their decision. The coordinator will inform all applicants of the selection decision.
