Every year, we recognize individuals or organizations who demonstrate a commitment to our program and its participants with our highest awards: the Jason L. Reimer Service to Youth Award and YMCA DC Youth & Government Service to Program Award. These individuals often go above and beyond in service to our students to ensure they have the best experience. You might find them behind the scenes helping find guest speakers or spaces for us to use. You might find them leading sessions or trainings for students to better their debate and public speaking skills. Others still donate mass amounts of their time to ensure we have safe and positive events. These awardees put in the hard work, but also the heart necessary for all of our events to run smoothly and these events would not be possible without them. 

William Howland receives the Jason L. Reimer Service to Youth Award (2019).
