Weil was honored with the Trailblazer Award for Corporate Social Responsibility at the fifth annual Read Alliance Youth Summit 2023, distinguishing Weil’s commitment to engaging as a responsible corporate citizen in the communities where we live and work.
“The Power of YOUth Summit: Celebrating the Leaders of Today,” a full-day event that took place on August 11, brought together READ Teen Leaders across the five boroughs of New York and beyond to commemorate the culmination of their meaningful summer employment and participation in leadership programming. The Summit also served as an opportunity to honor the Teen Leaders on their success as literacy role models for striving young readers.
