Celebration of Youth


Save the Date: Celebration of Youth is March 6, 2020

Celebration of Youth is Friends of Youth's largest annual fundraising event. Each year it brings together nearly 800 community, civic, and business leaders, and generous philanthropic donors for an afternoon of inspiration.

Guests attend to mingle with others who share their passion for uplifting the lives of youth, and to make a visible commitment to sustaining the work of the agency.

They leave energized by stories of Friends of Youth clients, and the knowledge that they are helping youth develop the relationships, resources, and skills they need to attain personal growth and success.
