Youth In Action
Held annually since 2004, Youth In Action celebrates and honors youth with disabilities between the ages of 14 and 21 years old. School and organization staff members nominate youth who have made significant contributions to their schools or communities. An awards ceremony is sponsored by the MCPD to publicly recognize nominees.
The most recent Youth in Action was held on Wednesday, October 23, 2014 at the Lake Merritt Sail Boat House. The keynote speaker for the event was 2006 Honoree Alva Gardner. 10 exceptional youth were recognized at this year's event.
