Our Mission

When Youth Salute communities applaud the positive accomplishments of their young men and women, they are building a culture that encourages excellence.

Youth Salute recognizes outstanding high school students, and involves them in seminars and workshops specifically designed to further develop their exemplary leadership skills.

Youth Salutes are the roots of our program, and have been implemented in communities across the country to provide recognition to outstanding high school students.


In order to be eligible for this program, students must:


Be a high school junior (senior class of 2025).


Have at least a cumulative 3.0 G.P.A. through their sophomore year. 


Have held TWO LEADERSHIP ROLES to which they were chosen by their peers or an adult leader within the past two years in school, religious or community sponsored organizations.
