horizontal rule

Know a NYC teen in foster care who deserves special recognition?

Youth Communication sponsors the Annual Awards for Youth in Foster Care to promote a more positive image of New York City foster youth among agency staff, youth workers, and the general public. Ten young people will be awarded prize money at a ceremony in spring 2020. The prize money can be spent however the winner likes, although it is recommended that it be spent on education-related activities.

Submit your applications for the 22nd Annual Awards for Youth in Foster Care by March 2, 2020.
