Too often, the focus is on what our youth are not doing instead of highlighting their many successes. The Maryland Association of Resources for Families and Youth (MARFY) believes that every young person has a purpose in life to fulfill. Part of helping youth attain success is to be encouraging during challenging times and uplift them when milestones are achieved. With the Annual Youth Achievement Awards, MARFY provides a platform to celebrate youth whose accomplishments include their fight against mental and behavioral health, trauma, or systemic barriers.
You're probably wondering how you can get in on the celebration. Just save the date! In addition to the Annual Youth Achievement Awards, this year marks the Maryland Association of Resources for Families & Youth's 50th anniversary. Join MARFY to celebrate young excellence and enjoy a delectable dinner with a keynote address.
