Program honours young volunteers

Know a kid? A really good kid who is making Cowichan a better place to live?

Volunteer Cowichan is looking for nominations for a new awards program called Leaders of Tomorrow.

If you know a student (age 6 to 21) who has made an outstanding contribution to the community through volunteer service, here’s your chance to sing their praises.

“The intent is to 1) publicly recognize youth who demonstrate outstanding leadership through volunteer efforts in the Cowichan Valley, 2) to affirm the value of their actions to the community, and 3) to create role models for other youth,” organizers state in a media release.

The nomination deadline is March 15. For nomination forms and more go here.

Award recipients will be honoured at an event in April.

Please consider nominating a youth volunteer displaying leadership qualities.
