Each week, Youth Serve America (YSA) features an Everyday Young Hero in the National Service Briefing. Everyday Young Heroes are youth leaders, ages 5-25, who identify a need in their community, address it through service, mobilize their peers and community partners, and engage the media and elected officials. Everyday Young Hero Award winners receive a certificate and award letter, and will be featured on YSA’s website and in the National Service Briefing. Youth selected as Everyday Young Heroes are also considered for YSA’s other awards, including YSA Service Stars and the Harris Wofford Award.
To nominate a young person who has improved their community through service, please visit www.YSA.org/awards/hero
