Youth Voice Awards
The 10th Anniversary of the MyCom Youth Voice Awards Event was held on November 15, 2018.
TriCity Winners from 2017 were asked to present awards this year. Carolyn Kovach, the new Director of Communications for the City of Parma and Amanda Rouse, a Caring Adult were able to attend and present awards to the 2018 winners.
Our nominees for 2018 included Richard Kaliszewski, a Valley Forge student, and the Parma Heights Police Department Police and Citizens Together (PACT) Unit.
Richard took home the Runner Up Award for Youth Community Service. He has spent countless hours volunteering at the Parma Area Family Collaborative for the Summer Days Program and many of the other programs or events happening there. He even goes so far as to call and ask if his help is needed for anything.
The PACT Unit won the Network Agency Award for Youth Engagement. The youth and police officers in the PACT unit youth group have a true partnership. Ideas and input are consistently youth-driven in planning activities, discussion topics and fundraising. The mission of this youth group is to provide an environment for personal growth and relationship building with positive adult role models, specifically good relationships between teens and police officers. The PACT Unit won the Network Agency Award for Youth Engagement.
Looking Ahead ….
