MYAN's ImpACT Awards
Through the MYAN ImpACT Awards, MYAN recognizes and celebrates youth leadership and the support systems that empower youth. These awards are all about finding and showcasing youth and adults who are making a positive impact--on each other, their communities, and their worlds. We hope this program will encourage and inspire other youth, adults and organizations to partner for positive change, too!
Get inspired by the 2012 MYAN ImpACT Award Winners! (MYAN will begin accepting nominations for the ImpACT Awards in the spring of 2013).
