YOUTH DAY

October 2021 | 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 2020, students attended a virtual Youth Leadership Day, went back to their schools and helped raise over $55,000.00 among their peers for the 2020/2021 campaign. This year, student leadership partnered up with the United Way of Amarillo and Canyon’s community impact allocation process to create a bigger impact for all programs in a year where many programs struggled. Youth Leadership Cabinet is excited to add $55,195.10 to the United Way of Amarillo & Canyon allocations for 2020. Allocations from this year’s campaign (2020/2021) will be announced Spring 2021.
