NRTA's 2009 With Our Youth! Award Winners

The NRTA With Our Youth! program is a volunteer service initiative implemented by retired educators associations and open to age-50+ adults nationwide. The initiative brings volunteers to work with children and youth to provide meaningful educational and life-skills support. NRTA With Our Youth! was formed in response to the 1997 Presidents' Summit for America's Future, at which the NRTA network made, a three-year pledge to provide 45 million volunteer service hours with 1.5 million youth in 2,000 communities. The goal was met and exceeded. Since 1999, With Our Youth! has reached more than 2.5 million young people in over 42 states.

The NRTA With Our Youth! program continues to grow and expand. Through it, young people have been inspired to reach their full potential because an adult took the time to be part of their lives. The Tenth Annual NRTA With Our Youth! Award recipients were chosen in the state, local and individual categories by an independent selection panel.
