Nominate a Connect with Kids Champion Today!

Connect with Kids Logo

Do you know someone who does exceptional things for young people?

It might be a teacher, volunteer, youth minister, or custodian. Or maybe a business, youth program leader, coach, foster parent, Scout leader or child advocate?

The Arlington Partnership for Children, Youth and Families invites you to nominate exceptional people, groups, or businesses for one of two Champion awards:

  • Connect With Kids, who build supportive relationships with young people OR
  • Do For Kids, who provide opportunities, experiences or support to youth and children.

We are pleased to add a NEW award: Do For Kids Champions. These would be individuals, teams or businesses who have supported young people through opportunities, experiences, or support that allows children and youth to learn and grow.

 Visit our website for more information and to NOMINATE a CHAMPION!

Nominations are being accepted now through February 20, 2018.

Contact Michael Swisher at mswish@arlingtonva.us, or 703-228-1671 for more information.
