U-ROC Youth Awards
What are the U-ROC (Richmond Outstanding Community) Youth Awards?
During BC Youth Week (May 1-7), the City of Richmond hosts the U-ROC (Richmond Outstanding Community) Awards to celebrate the achievements and dedication of youth and caring adults within the Richmond community in two categories: Outstanding Youth and Adult Asset Champions.
Youth in this category are nominated for displaying exceptional qualities, making Richmond a better place and overcoming barriers towards their personal success.
Adults in this category are nominated for showing dedication and commitment to helping youth build Developmental Assets. These adults go out of their way to inspire, mentor and make a difference in the lives of youth.
The U-ROC Awards utilize the 40 Developmental Assets framework for working with youth by recognizing outstanding young people who have developed assets and adults who contribute to the positive development of youth.
U-ROC Award nominees receive recognition for a variety of important reasons, some of these include: youth who have made significant contributions through volunteering, young people who have overcome significant barriers toward their personal success and adults who have gone the extra mile to support and mentor young people in Richmond.
Nominations for the annual U-ROC Awards are now closed. See below for a list of award recipients.
