Y.E.S. (Youth Excellence in Service) Award

Beginning in 2019, Canopy Housing Foundation and its Realtor® members instituted the YES Award to recognize and celebrate the area’s youth who are engaged in improving the quality of life in the region.

Young people who are engaged in service mature into adults who serve the community. This award was established to encourage youth to address a broad spectrum of needs in an effort to build a stronger community.

It is our hope that all young people will realize their potential to impact the lives of others and, in return, find fulfillment in their own lives.


Youth ages 10-18 are eligible
