UnifiedErie Youth Work Awards

Congratulations to Theresa Williams for having been recognized at the UnifiedErie Youth Awards ceremony on May 4th, 2017. The UnifiedErie Youth Work Awards exists to honor the amazing adults in our community that work directly with children and youth under the age of 18 at non-profit agencies in Erie County. Youth workers are often the unsung heroes of the youth within our communities. These are the individuals who have a direct impact on the lives of our youth. They often wear many hats- mentor, educator, counselor, and friend.
