Advisor Resources

Adult volunteers are paramount to the success of The Congressional Award. Together, we work in partnership for the betterment of America’s youth.

the betterment of America’s youth

With the help of adult Advisors and volunteers, we have been able to reach out to youth groups, schools, and community organizations across the country. Groups such as Boys & Girls Clubs, 4-H, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, HOBY, YMCA, Outward Bound, and military installations have brought The Congressional Award to new heights.

With the help of teachers, administrators, and guidance counselors, we have been able to involve school organizations such as Junior ROTC, Key Clubs, FBLA, Junior Achievement, and many others. We have also worked with Congressional Offices that have been instrumental in our efforts to reach out to young people across the nation.

THE INSPIRATION AWARD

The Inspiration Award is given each year to an outstanding Congressional Award Advisor on behalf of the Joint Leadership of the United States Congress and The Congressional Award Foundation Board of Directors. The Inspiration Award is presented before Gold Medalists and peers at the annual Gold Medal Ceremony. The leadership and service provided by each Inspiration Awardee through The Congressional Award has been just that, an inspiration.
