This week, Youth Service America (YSA) recognized Ila Prabhuram as an Everyday Young Hero for her passion for empowering youth to be active and making positive community changes.
“We know that young people are uniquely suited to help solve problems - if given the opportunity,” said Steven A. Culbertson, president of YSA. “Today’s social and environmental problems are immense; we need youth in this country to be leaders and problem solvers today, not just the leaders of a distant tomorrow.”
Prabhuram is an Everyday Young Hero for her commitment to finding her voice, taking action, and making an impact in her community.
The Everyday Young Hero award recognizes young people who are actively engaged in serving their communities and acting as a role model to other potential change makers. It is a chance to shine a spotlight on Everyday Young Heroes in our communities who would otherwise go unnoticed. To see and learn about YSA’s Everyday Young Heroes visit www.YSA.org/awards/eyh.
