Mission Statement

The mission of the Jefferson Awards' Youth Service Initiative is to double volunteering in American high schools and teach leadership and ethical decision-making to the students to retain and expand upon America's greatest tradition and highest calling - public and community service. Jefferson Awards for Public Service was established in 1972 by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator Robert Taft, Jr., and Sam Beard to create a Nobel Prize for community and public service. We invite you to visit our web site -- www.jeffersonawards.org -- and learn about the Jefferson Awards and the Youth Service Initiative.
