Athletics are one of the many gifts and platforms that students can use to bring God glory. The Outstanding Christian Athlete award is a unique award presented to a student that has displayed Christ-likeness on and off the field.
Every one of our 586 clubs deserve this award in different respects but this award is given to a club that has displayed excellence in club programming, leadership, community service and diversity.
A vital and indispensable leadership role in every Youth Commission club is the teacher or faculty member that sponsors and provides leadership to the club. Every year, 2 extraordinary teachers are awarded the Eagle Award for Teacher Sponsor of the Year.
Campus mentors are often the bridge between the local church and a local school. Campus mentors are pastors, parents or adults who invest heavily in students on campus. Directly and indirectly influencing the club by providing leadership, discipleship, guidance and care - strong YCI clubs often have an influential mentor at the core.
It is the desire of YCI for every parent to be involved on some level at their child's local school. Providing leadership, organizing service projects, mentoring students, encouraging teachers, arranging rides to or from club or bringing a couple dozen doughnuts - there's never a shortage of involvement opportunities.
