The Wellesley Service League has presented the annual Centennial Youth Service Award for the last 35 years. This award is given by the League for outstanding volunteer service, preferably in our community. The applicant should be a Wellesley resident, completing his or her senior year in high school, who has demonstrated unusual dedication and selflessness in a volunteer capacity. Ideally, this service has been performed in the immediate area. Our mission is to not only recognize outstanding volunteer service among our youth but also to encourage the spirit of volunteerism in our community. Wellesley Service League will name up to two recipients this year. Recipients will receive a $1,500 award from Wellesley Service League and their names will be engraved on a permanent plaque that hangs in the Wellesley Community Center.
