Welcome to the 2020 Delegates!

As you may be aware, the United States Senate Youth Program made the extremely difficult decision to cancel this year's Washington Week amidst concerns surrounding COVID-19. The USSYAA, in its mission to assist the Senate Youth Program, has accelerated the process of integrating the Class of 2020 into our alumni activities. Please take a moment to update your contact information in the Alumni Area of this site so that we can stay in touch with news about activities and events surrounding this year's delegate group. Information on the delegates themselves is available in our March 12 Announcement.

USSYAA Announces 2020 Award Recipients

The United States Senate Youth Alumni Association is proud to announce that this year's Rosalie Wynn Hearst Distinguished Public Service Award winner is Chuck Hagel, and our James T. Molloy Alumni Service Award winner is George Irish. Secretary Hagel was the 24th Secretary of Defense, serving in the Obama Administration, and Mr. Irish is the Eastern Director of the Hearst Foundations. The Rosalie Wynn Hearst Public Service Award recognizes exceptional service on the national stage, and the James T. Molloy Alumni Service Award recognizes exemplary accomplishments of individuals who have had direct involvement in the Senate Youth Program.
