Congratulations to the 2015 Youth Alliance Award Nominees and Winners!

The Youth Alliance Awards presentation is one of the Volunteer Center's signature events.  This awards presentation was started in 1994 by a group of representatives that worked with amazing youth that they wanted to highlight and thank for all the service they provide in our community.

The structure has not changed much since that first event. The Fox Cities Youth Service Award is presented to one individual and one youth group in recognition of service to the Fox Cities community. The awards seek to recognize the spirit of volunteerism, as found in future leaders of our community, and to encourage young people and adults to take hold of that same spirit in their own lives. All individuals and organizations throughout the Valley are encouraged to nominate any youth or youth group who has demonstrated a commitment to helping others and has succeeded in positively impacting the lives of others during the period from the January of the previous year to the nomination period prior to the spring event.

Congratulations to the individual winner, Paige Kipping. Paige is currently a child care volunteer at Harbor House and started volunteering in 2013. She plays, reads, colors and pretends with children while their mothers attend support groups. In 2014 our community lost a dedicated Harbor House volunteer by the name Ali. Paige & Ali volunteered together and often discussed their ideas for the child care room and what could be done to make it more inviting & colorful. After Ali passed away, Paige helped others & spent hours refreshing the child care room in honor of Ali, Including purchasing supplies, painting rooms and rearranging existing furniture.

Congratulations to the group winner, Freedom High School Carpe Diem Division of the National Honor Society. For almost 15 years, the students have been a vital workforce for the Housing Partnership, assisting them with painting, wall repair, detailed cleaning, appliance removal and installation, landscaping, and basic construction. They diligently work long days, sometimes doing very detailed jobs, all to ensure that their newly purchased houses are transformed into homes. With almost 40 students giving 8 hours of their time once a quarter, the Freedom NHS group annually provides over 1,280 hours of renovation and rehabilitation services for the Housing Partnership. Over the past 15 years, they have volunteered over 19,000 hours of support to the organization.
