We're the United States Congress' award program for young Americans. Our program fosters citizenship in youth ages 13 1/2 - 23 by encouraging personal goal-setting and community service.

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.

The Congressional Award is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. All contributions are fully tax deductible. Receipts are provided upon payment.
