The Riverside County Workforce Development Board would like to invite you to join them at the Jamil Dada Character Excellence Youth Awards Ceremony. This event, scheduled to take place on Friday, June 28, 2019 at Moreno Valley Conference and Recreation Center, honors Riverside County youth who have shown exemplary character while overcoming some of life’s significant challenges.


Many of the young people selected to receive the award have been victims of poverty, child abuse, child neglect, abandonment, homelessness, a life of crime and some have even witnessed suicide and/or murder of a family member. In spite of their tragic situations, these young people have been identified as leaders in their communities, determined to earn a high school diploma, and in pursuit of a post-secondary education.


The evening will include a delicious dinner, words of inspiration from seven-time NBA All-Star, James Worthy,along with remarks from national, state and local leaders. Honorees will receive trophies, certificates from national, state and local leaders and scholarships to assist them with tuition, books, transportation, and living expenses.


Price of registration includes dinner and the awards ceremony.  All net proceeds benefit the Jamil Dada Character Excellence Scholarship Fund which supports formerly disconnected youth in their pursuit of higher education.


Please consider becoming a sponsor of the event. Together, we can make a difference in the life of a deserving young person!
