  • Outstanding Youth Award

    At the recent Georgia Conference on Families and Children, Jordan D. received the Outstanding Youth Award for 2019.  Jordan has been in the foster care system since 2008 and has spent the last 16 months with Elks Aidmore.   Jordan was nominated for the award by the Multi-Agency Alliance for Children, of which Elks Aidmore is a founding member.

    The nomination read:

    ” Jordan has been working with the EmpowerMEnt/L.E.A.D.S. program for two years and provides a much needed male presence and role model.  He has coordinated 10 events for over 300  youth and makes sure the team is representing and MAAC properly.  He does not shy away from being a leader and encouraging his peers to hold themselves accountable.  Jordan has represented MAAC/EmpowerMEnt both in Georgia as well as across the country with national partners, from which he received high praise about the way he conducted himself.”

    In Jordan’s words, “growing up in the foster care system has sparked an ambition in me to create change and make a difference on other foster youth’s lives to make them better.  As we say in Empowerment, ‘Nothing about us, without us'”.

    Earlier this year, Jordan received the “Shining Star” award from the Multi-Agency Alliance for Children. He is currently enrolled at Georgia Military College, and continues to receive support and encouragement from his Elks Aidmore foster parents.

    The Georgia Conference on Children and Families is the largest annual interdisciplinary event in Georgia designed to bring together the community that serves children and families. The conference was attended by over 500 participants. The award was presented by Alison Evans, President of Together Georgia.  Together Georgia is a preeminent voice in Georgia’s child and welfare policy making through advocacy, collaboration, networking and communication.
