The Congressional Award: Amercia’s Award For Youth

The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ award for young Americans. Our Foundation remains Congress’ only charity. The program is open to all youth ages 14 to 23 and is non-partisan, voluntary, and non-competitive. Young people may register when they turn 13 1/2 years old and must complete their activities before their 24th birthday.

Participants earn Bronze, Silver, and Gold Congressional Award Certificates and Bronze, Silver, and Gold Congressional Award Medals. Each level involves setting goals in four program areas: Voluntary Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration. Earning The Congressional Award is a fun and interesting way to get more involved in something you already enjoy or something you’d like to try for the first time. You move at your own pace – on your own or with your friends. This is not an award for past accomplishments. Instead, you are honored for achieving your own challenging goals after registering for the program.

Regardless of your situation, you can earn The Congressional Award. The Congressional Award has no minimum grade point average requirements. It accommodates young people with special needs or disabilities who are willing to take the challenge.

RECAP: Summer Youth Resource Expo

Thank you to all who attended and participated in my Summer Youth Resource Expo this past Sunday.

Hundreds of young people and their parents were able to speak to over 40 participating organizations, receiving information on summer programs and internships in the areas of education, music, dance, culture, arts, sports, business, and more.

We enjoyed performances by Brooklyn United Marching BandTropicalfete Inc., and Lotus Creations Academy of the Performing Arts. Attendees won amazing raffle prizes, like free dance lessons, free camp sessions, game systems, technology gift packs, swag bags, and even a free camping trip!

I am so excited to bring you an even bigger and better Summer Youth Resource Expo in 2018. Let’s continue working together to build a brighter future for our youth!

See below for live video from the event and website links and other information about the featured organizations.

Sincerely,

Council Member Laurie A. Cumbo
