Opportunity Description

Do you harbor a desire to enhance your neighborhood and the entire world? Do you see opportunity when others just see problems? For the Prudential Emerging Visionaries Program, submit an application. A nationwide recognition program called Prudential Emerging Visionaries honors young people who are in charge of creative initiatives to alleviate economic or societal problems in their neighborhoods.

The prudential spirit of community awards, a long-running program that has recognized more than 150,000 such young people over a 26-year period, evolved into emerging visionaries. Emerging visionaries continue a heritage of civic engagement while paying greater attention to societal and financial challenges.
