Now Accepting Nominations for the 2013 Young Leadership Award

February 3, 2013 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS: Monday, March 1, 2013

Every year, the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit is pleased to identify and honor three young people from our community for their outstanding leadership skills. Federation’s Young Leadership Awards acknowledge these role models while seeking to stimulate their continuing participation in Jewish communal affairs.

Under the direction of the Leadership Development Department and the Executive Office of Federation, the goal of the Young Leadership Awards Committee is to ensure that the very best candidates are considered each year.

Mark Family Young Leadership Award

The Mark Family Young Leadership Award was established in 1993 by Florine Mark Ross and her family. It recognizes an established leader in NEXTGen (formerly YAD) who has shown outstanding commitment and achieved remarkable success within the NEXTGen. In addition, this young adult will have demonstrated significant involvement in Federation’s Annual Campaign. The current president of NEXTGen is ineligible for this award.

The Mark Award seeks to acknowledge this role model and to stimulate the person’s continuing interest and activity in Jewish communal affairs. The awardee receives a grant to attend a Jewish Federations of North America Young Leadership Conference. The presentation takes place at the NEXTGen Annual Meeting.
