On 3 July 2019 young people from across the country will gather in London's West End for the Celebrating Young People Awards (CYPA). Cardinal Vincent Nichols will be presenting this year's Pope Francis Award. The awards - now in their fourth year - are organised by Million Minutes and see hundreds of young people nominated in six categories, each celebrating a different aspect of Catholic Social Teaching lived out in social action.
Previous award recipients included young careers, peer mentors, a group of climate change activists, a student challenging bullying, an eighteen-year-old who feeds and supports his local homeless community, and a mental health campaigner.
There are seven categories to nominate people for, including for promoting solidarity and peace, for fostering community and participation, and caring for the environment. There is also an award for an inspiring adult youth leader. And once again, Cardinal Nichols will select from the nominations the recipient of the Pope Francis Award.
This is your call to action: nominate a young person or group you know for a Celebrating Young People Award today!
Deadline for nominations is the 24 May 2019.
CYPA is run by Million Minutes, a charity founded in 2011. It raises money and supports youth action and advocacy activities that give voice and support to young people to transform their lives and their world, inspired by Catholic Social Teaching.
