Summer Celebration & Advocacy Awards

June 20, 2019 from 5-9 PM

@ St. John’s Club, 9 Central Avenue in Burlington


Join us on the shores of Lake Champlain as we recognize courageous advocates for Vermont's kids and youth.

The Summer Celebration is a chance for us to reflect on the legislative session, celebrate advocacy award winners & enjoy performances from some of Vermont’s incredibly talented youth artists. This year we'll be entertained by a harpist from Young Tradition Vermont, the Bhutanese Nepali Cultural Heritage Dance Group, and more!

2019 David Goldberg Advocacy Award will be presented to Amanda Garces, founder of the Vermont Coalition for Ethnic and Social Equity in Schools.

2019 Youth Leadership Award will be presented to Nate Farnham, an advocate for youth voice in the child protective system.

Proceeds support Voices’ Roots & Wings fund for advocacy on behalf of Vermont’s children and youth.
