About the Young People of Achievement Awards

Check out the flyer for the 2015 Young People of Achievement Awards.

Each year, YWCA Alaska recognizes 10 Anchorage youth with the Young People of Achievement Award. The Award Recipients are young people who have overcome major challenges in their lives and who have worked to fulfill the mission of the YWCA: eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity to all. We are privileged to have such amazing young people impacting our community and are honored that we are able to publically acknowledge their contributions.
