We're the United States Congress' award for young Americans. Our program is open to all young people ages 13 1/2 to 23, regardless of ability or circumstance. We encourage young people to practice good citizenship by setting goals for themselves and their communities, interacting with mentors, and immersing themselves in new and unique experiences.

The tenets of our program are Voluntary Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration.

This unique public-private partnership does not receive any federal funding but relies on private donations from supporters like you. Whether it's a one-time or recurring monthly gift, a contribution of $25 or $5,000, your donation ensures the continuation of this important youth development program for years to come.

Thank you for giving the gift of opportunity and making a pledge to America's youth leaders!
