Youth Assistance sponsors a Youth Recognition breakfast to honor students who are nominated for volunteer service through their church, school, or community.  Students are nominated by school personnel, members of the clergy, parents and community members. Nominators are asked to consider children who go “above and  beyond” to help others in their community.

This event, which will take place in May, focuses on young people as volunteers and change agents in the South Lyon community. Nominees, nominators, family and community members are invited to a light breakfast, at which nominees are presented awards by representatives from the Oakland County Circuit Court-Family Division, City of South Lyon, Lyon Township, South Lyon Community Schools and South Lyon Area Youth Assistance.

There will be scholarships awarded to individuals who demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities within the scope of community service and volunteerism.

Volunteers are needed to help with the event. Please call the South Lyon Area Youth Assistance office at 248.573.8189 to learn more.
