About the Event

The Awards Dinner recognizes the chosen youth and begins their relationship of support and guidance that lasts through their post-high school education. Many of these young people have never experienced Positive Recognition For Their Accomplishments. Most have not received the encouragement, guidance, and support they needed so desperately. In spite of this, they have embarked on a pathway of success, hope, and triumph. All If Given A Chance Students have Overcome a life challenge such as gang affiliation, a severe medical condition, or a challenging family or living situation. Though their obstacles may have been the result of their own behavior or the result of what others had done to them--all have faced their challenges with determination, resiliency, and a will to build a better life.

Join us in celebrating the incredible achievements of our 2017 Awardees as they prepare to embark upon their post-high school educational journey.​
