Since 2014 Toronto United Church Council’s Baillie Volunteer Service Awards have been presented to United Church youth and young adults for their commitment to volunteer service. The individuals who have received the awards have been active in a variety of projects: from assisting with hot meal programs and food banks and providing leadership to church youth groups to participating in community development projects overseas and founding their own service clubs.
Fifteen awards are available each year. The awards have a value of $500 and can be used to assist the recipients with their financial needs for education, travel, or professional development. The recipients must be nominated by a member of a United Church community of faith.
Please consider nominating a young member of your community of faith who is doing great things for their church and community! It is a great way for congregations to lift up the many ways our young people are engaged in mission and ministry.
