Celebrate Young Leaders who inspire their peers and communities.


Youth Awards nominations for outstanding young leaders come from peers, mentors, friends, classmates, & colleagues.

The inaugural 2018 Youth Awards celebrated young leaders who have inspired their peers and communities while embodying the values of the California Endowment. The awards were issued to young leaders whose actions changed public policies, created innovative models of service, strengthened local institutions, or otherwise contributed to the TCE's overall mission of Building Healthy Communities.
