Each year the Marina Smoker Youth Leadership Award acknowledges the outstanding efforts of teens throughout the entire YMCA of Coastal Georgia association who have demonstrated leadership and character traits that strengthen their Y, home, school, and community.
Recipients of this award are committed to making a lasting impact in their communities. These are students who embody the core values that are at the heart of all that we do at the Y. These core values are:
CARING— Demonstrating a sincere concern for others, their needs, and well-being.
HONESTY— To tell the truth.
RESPECT— Treat others as you would want them to treat you.
RESPONSIBILITY— Do what is right, be accountable for your choices of behavior, and actions of your promises.
