Santa Clara County “Youth Mentors Hall of Fame” Awards Dinner
Held in Conjunction with the Santa Clara CountyAnnual “Salute to Youth” Awards Program


The purpose of the ‘Youth Mentors’ Hall of Fame Awards Program is to honor unsung heroes that are community minded citizens and organizations that provide services or voluntary skills and energies in areas that greatly contribute to the welfare and vitality of youth in our community. The ‘Youth Mentors’ Hall of Fame recognizes the meritorious contributions made by men and women of our community as well as organizations who enhance the quality of life for youth. Each ‘Youth Mentor’ nominee will receive a beautiful award at the Annual “Salute to Youth/Youth Hall of Fame” awards program.


Youth Focus Inc., believes that by recognizing individuals and organizations that serve our youth it will serve to foster and inspire a greater commitment to youth service in our community. These hard working individuals are often behind the scenes. They are catalysts encouraging and motivating youth to higher levels of accomplishment, which has a long-term, positive impact on their lives. We need your help in finding deserving Youth Mentors who work within our community investing in the lives of your people.


To nominate a candidate, please submit a one-page narrative (see sample) using the form on the Applications page. You may also submit up to three pages of support materials. The nominee may be a volunteer or a paid professional serving youth.
