Celebration of Youth

The Celebration of Youth is one example of the Y's commitment to invest in the young people from Lambton-County. Recognized regionally as one of Ontario's most prestigious awards for youth, the Celebration of Youth honours local youth, 17-20 years of age whose outstanding talents and achievements have made a difference in our community.  The awards focus on youth who have demonstrated leadership, sensitivity to others, innovation, development of personal talents, overcoming personal challenge and service to community.  Special consideration is given to youth faced with financial barriers.

Award recipients embody the YMCA core values of:
Caring - we can be trusted to do the right thing;
Honesty - We keep our promises, and we do what we say we will;
Respect - We believe in the good within people;
Responsibility - We are leaders, and set an example for others;
Inclusiveness - We create a place for everyone at the YMCA. 

After completing a comprehensive application and interview process, the successful recipients will receive a $1,000 award. The awards will be presented at a public celebration where the winners' successes will be celebrated by the YMCA and its sponsors.  

Celebration of Youth nominees and award recipients have enriched our community and inspired us through their creativity, leadership, compassion and dedication. They have used their talents, vision and determination to make Lambton County a better place to live. In 2015, we are recognizing contributions and achievements in 18 award categories.
