The Volunteer Center of the Inland Empire is proud to host its 9th Annual Teens Make A Difference Awards Ceremony at Inland Center Mall on Wednesday April 30, 2003 at 7pm. Since 1994 we have recognized the efforts of more than 2800 teens throughout San Bernardino County for their volunteer service to their communities. This year we will recognize over 800 students from 23 area schools for over 62,000 hours of service.

It is because of this enthusiasm and dedication to service that the Volunteer Center in partnership with the Inland Center Mall continues to honor these outstanding teens and bring their good deeds to the attention of the community. Students will be recognized based on the total number of hours they have contributed this year.

Individuals who have volunteered over 100 hours are eligible to receive a service letter, similar to the varsity letters athletes receive. Teens who have volunteered more than 250 hours are eligible for the Presidential Student Service Award signed by President George Bush and other local legislators.

We work closely with several area high schools promoting volunteer service as a learning tool. Through volunteering students develop a sense of community pride while also gaining valuable life experiences and skills they can put to use after graduation.

The Teens Make A Difference Awards Ceremony will be held in the Sears Court at the Inland Center Mall on Wednesday, April 30, 2003 at 7pm. The community is invited to attend and applaud these remarkable young people. They really do make a difference.
