Rhea of Hope Foundation honorees are individuals who demonstrate outstanding volunteer leadership and commitment in addressing the social needs of adolescent girls, young women and young men. For the purpose of this award, we define volunteerism as a service performed of one's own free will, without pay, for a charitable, community or humanitarian cause.
The primary criterion for selection of the community service awardee will be the quality, demonstrated commitment, time span and value of volunteer's service.
*Court ordered community service does not qualify for this award.
The Volunteer Awards Selection Committee will consist of Rhea of Hope Foundation volunteers, friends, business and community associates.
The foundation will respond to a request for application to be mailed via U. S. Post Office, upon written request. The selection committee will select two award winners, one from the Community sector and one from the Corporate sector. The winners will be notified by phone and mail of their selection.
It is required that all award recipients be present at our Annual Rhea of Hope Foundation Scholarship Awards Fundraiser, which is held on the first Sunday of October each year with the exception of 2017. The 2017 event will be held on Sunday, October 8, 2017, 1pm to 5pm at the Bolingbrook Golf Club, Bolingbrook, Illinois.
NOTE: The award selection committee may request and collect additional materials, written or otherwise, and may consult with any individual or entity, which in its view may be helpful in the selection process.
Applications must be submitted on or before midnight September 1, 2017
Rhea of Hope Foundation board members and their family members will not be eligible to receive this award.
