What We Do
traditional, competitive, youth recongition programs that honor
the "best of the best," the International Youth Hall of
Fame is a community,
asset-building program that uses youth acknowledgement
as the vehicle to bring families, friends, neighborhoods, schools
and communities together to see, acknowledge and celebrate the best
in all our kids.
Youth Hall of Fame layers easily and
supports communities with initiatives employing the 40

of Fame has honored more than 3,000 youth and their families in

with communities throughout the US, Canada and the world.

without hope. How can we change that?
