Lens on Leaders: Youth of the Year 2023 Highlights

Youth of the Year 2023

Under a shimmering night sky at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers, we gathered to commemorate the remarkable journey and triumphs of our Youth of the Year 2023. With Bianca, Kayla, Madiagne, Nazhir, Prince Elijah, and Savannah at the helm, the event was not only a celebration of their individual feats but also a testament to the undying spirit of youth and the promise of a brighter tomorrow. As a New York event photographer, it was a privilege to capture the raw emotion and sheer determination that radiated from our youth leaders, the fervor in their eyes speaking volumes about their resilience and hopes for the future.

Our Champion of Youth honorees, including Kerry Chandler, Mandell Crawley, and Wayne Hewett, along with Deloitte, our Corporate Champion of Youth honoree, and Otis Rolley, our Wells Fargo award speaker, embodied the essence of leadership and dedication. Their commitment to service and excellence served as a beacon of inspiration, illuminating the pathway for our young leaders. The contagious energy of our exceptional MC, Sarah Wallace, kept the evening pulsating with excitement and purpose, mirroring the resolute spirit of our youth. Witnessing the synergy between our supporters, volunteers, and attendees, it was clear that together, we are creating a brighter future for our youth, helping them reach new heights.
