It is through the generosity and selflessness of hundreds of volunteers that NYA is able to offer its programs and make a difference. Without the kindness of volunteers, there is no way that NYA would be able to exist. NYA is grateful to all of our dedicated volunteers for offering up their time and skills to support a program we all believe in. In order to recognize some of NYA’s most dedicated and impactful volunteers, NYA presents the Outstanding Volunteer Award to volunteers who have made a lasting impression on the organization and the youth we serve.
The Outstanding Volunteer Award is presented to volunteers that offer their time and skills to the organization in a variety of ways that often include working directly with NYA Participants. Facilitators, Group Leaders, Mentors, and Host Families are some of the volunteers who have been recognized with this award for the dedication they have shown to Participants, and the positive impact they have made in their lives. The Outstanding Volunteer Award is also presented with an NYA Builder designation to individuals who have been instrumental in the creation, maintenance and growth of the organization. Recipients of this award include individuals who have dedicated years to the improvement of Northern Youth Abroad and who have made a lasting positive impact on the governance, direction and success of the organization.
Thank you to all of
