Spotlight of Justice Awards 2017
Cesar Chavez Service Clubs awarded for shining a light that guides others to meaningful action to improve lives and build an equitable society
Based on the values of the legendary Cesar Chavez, the Service Clubs offer innovative leadership development experiences for students at many elementary and high schools in the San Diego region. Through community service, leadership skills training, and civic participation, students build confidence and are inspired to believe in themselves and their ability to make a lasting difference.
For those of us disappointed by so many of our “leaders,” young people are a source of hope, inspiration, and motivation. This award recognizes the Cesar Chavez Service Clubs for training future leaders who know history, take their civic responsibilities seriously, and lead with love.
