Archbishop Molloy High School Students Earn National Awards For Community Service Impact
United Nations Association of the USA Recognizes Youth Leaders Delivering Progress Toward The UN Sustainable Development Goals
[NEW YORK, NY], May, 25, 2023 – Archbishop Molloy High School is excited to announce that nearly 50 students are being recognized by the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) and InnerView in the sixth Annual Community Service Awards. This program, open to all U.S. students, has been designed to connect student community service activities, skill development, and commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to transform our world. The Kroger Co. is presenting the fourth annual Zero Hero Awards to students for taking action to help create communities free of hunger and waste.
“The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been a directional beacon not only for UN member states, but also for their citizens, including, and perhaps especially—their young people. As a movement that empowers and engages Americans to support the United Nations and the SDGs, UNA-USA is thrilled to partner with InnerView once again,” says Rachel Bowen Pittman, Executive Director of the United Nations Association of the USA. “We are thrilled to be involved with a platform that not only helps to capture the impact that young people are having, but to recognize and to celebrate their achievements. Kudos to all those who have committed to staying the course and doing their part to help actualize the SDGs!”
Students from Archbishop Molloy High School delivered the most impact for SDG 3-Good Health & Well-Being. With a collective impact of 7574 community service hours this school year, Archbishop Molloy High School earned the Emerald Award.
"What a fabulous group to lift up; these purposeful students are taking action to create a better tomorrow for their communities and the world,” says Kristine Sturgeon, CEO of InnerView Technologies. “High school students have a strong perspective on the most challenging issues and needs facing our communities. They have given us hope as we see a measured increase in breadth and depth of volunteerism by these local leaders and global citizens.”
A key artifact students gain through the Award Program is the development of a digital service resume for use in job and college applications to demonstrate personal commitment, 21st century skills, and key areas of interest. The three-tier award program recognizes a range of student achievement: Merit for 25 hours, Honor for 40 hours and Ambassador for 100 hours of service this school year and special recognition for a focus on Zero Hunger and Zero Waste.
