Youth in Service

The Youth in Service Awards program celebrates local middle school and high school students who have demonstrated a passion for helping others in our community. Nominated students will be honored at a spring event co-sponsored by Birmingham Youth Assistance and the Birmingham Optimists. All will receive certificates of commendation from elected officials at the national, state, and local levels, and two "All Star" students will also receive financial awards. This recognition will strengthen any college or scholarship application.


​Public and private school students in grades 6-12 who live or attend school within the boundaries of the Birmingham Public School district are eligible. If you would like to be contacted when the application is made available or have questions please contact


Congratulations to the 2024 honorees!
