Youth Mentor of the Year

Each year, the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York (FASNY) Youth in the Fire Service Committee honors an outstanding youth group leader. This person embodies all the values that make this critical position influential and effective.

A leader is a person who has vision and the skills to make it happen – someone who leads by example. This leader motivates members of the youth group and keeps a positive attitude that inspires them to be their best. Finally, this leader is a good listener, lending attention to the needs and wants of the youth group.
