The Coalition for Community Schools is excited to launch its inaugural Youth Leadership Award to recognize a youth leader who strives for equity and social justice in their school and community.

Nominate a deserving youth leader in your school today!

To be eligible, the youth nominee must be:

  • Ages 14-24 years old
  • Is attending or has attended a community school, or is currently working with a community school

The selected award recipient will be invited to attend the National Forum (May 2-4 in Baltimore, MD) and speak at the Lunch Plenary on May 3 where they will receive their award. The Coalition hopes to secure scholarship money to cover hotel and travel costs.

Nominations are due March 7. Nominate a youth leader today!
