Prudential Names America's Top Youth Volunteers

These National Honorees, named during the program’s 20th annual national award ceremony at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, range in age from 12 to 18. They were selected first from a field of more than 33,000 middle level and high school youth volunteers nationwide, and then from 102 State Honorees, based on their initiative, effort, impact, and the personal growth demonstrated in the course of their volunteer service.
