Recognize a “Champion for Youth” in Arlington While Providing Support for Alliance Youth Programs
Please find someone in Arlington that is an outstanding teacher, coach, counselor, mentor, tutor, youth group leader, or youth pastor and recognize their efforts through our “Champions for Youth Honor Roll” Program. While making your donation (click here), you can be an important part of revitalizing our community’s support for youth.
The Alliance will help you recognize these individuals by doing the following:
- Post their name to the “Champions for Youth Honor Roll” on this website and list them in our annual report
- Announce their addition to Arlington’s “Champions for Youth Honor Roll” in our Little Red Wagon Express Newsletter
- Mail them the red wagon lapel pin, and a certificate indicating a citizen has nominated them for the Champions for Youth Honor Roll
- Invite them as a guest to our Annual Youth Collaboration Breakfast.
The minimum donation is $100 per honoree. All donors will receive a little red wagon lapel pin that signifies you support the Five Promises and the youth in our community.
Your efforts as a donor and the honoree’s efforts as a Champion for Youth are central to both the development of our youth and our community. Additionally, you play a key role in helping Arlington continue to be a Top 100 Best community for Young People.
