Award Overview

The Corporate Volunteer Council of Atlanta (CVC) is proud to present the second annual Carol D. Reiser Youth Service Awards, named in loving memory of CVC co-founder and past president, Carol Reiser. Reiser enjoyed a long career with Rich’s/Macy’s and established the company’s innovative “Partners in Time” volunteer program, which is still active today. The Youth Service Awards recognize and celebrate extraordinary youth volunteerism and community engagement. In doing so, CVC honors Carol Reiser’s visionary legacy by instilling the spirit of community and purpose to inspire the next generation of service-oriented leaders.

Award Prize

Winners will be awarded with a $500 personal stipend and a $1,500 donation in their name to the valid 501c3 nonprofit or accredited school of their choice. If a group is selected as the winner, the group members will split the $500 personal stipend and decide as a group on the charity which will receive the $1500 donation.  

Winners will be recognized onstage with a check presentation ceremony at the CVC’s annual Holiday Luncheon in December. Winners will also be recognized at next year’s CVC IMPACT Awards (fall of 2021) and be featured on CVC’s social media, website and other publications.
