Nominate a Caped Crusader

Make way for Generation Z (and beyond!) – responsible kids who value social responsibility. Each quarter, we’ll spotlight a child, teen or youth group who is doing great things to help their communities, charities and others in need.

If you know a young person or group in Central PA who you think deserves to be recognized, let us know by completing our online nomination form. With your help, we can inspire others to do good in our community and get the word out about volunteer and service opportunities in Central PA.
