YOUTH DAY

October 30, 2019 | 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

More than 800 teenagers from area middle schools and high schools will unite at the Amarillo Civic Center-Grand Plaza to learn about the needs in their own community and what they can do to make a difference. Buses from AISD, CISD, Bushland ISD, River Road and Highland Park will bring their students downtown and over the course of the day, students will visit at least 30 programs funded by United Way of Amarillo & Canyon donors. 

In 2017, students who attended Youth Leadership Day, went back to their schools and helped raise over $32,000 among their peers. The Youth Cabinet then researched grants and allocated those dollars to local programs and projects. Allocations from this year’s campaign will be announced Spring 2019.

Location: Civic Center - Grand Plaza, 401 S. Buchanan St.

A BIG Thank You to our Youth Day Sponsors of 2018:
