Volunteer MBC strongly believes that youth are the leaders of our tomorrow. We also believe that it is our role to help nurture youth, to provide them with the correct paths to follow, to lead them by example, and to provide recognition for their efforts of helping out their community. The Leader of Tomorrow Award covers youth of all ages who are attending school in Peel (elementary, secondary school, university or college).
The inaugural presentation of the Leader of Tomorrow Award took place at Volunteer MBC’s 2014 Annual General Meeting and 4th Annual Volunteer Recogntion Awards Event held in April 2014.
