The Miss Teen Volunteer America Organization is a nationwide, service-oriented scholarship program based in Tennessee that seeks to empower young women across the country. It focuses on the five points of its crown, S.E.R.V.E. which means service, education, responsibility, volunteerism, and empowerment.
“I am so excited to be involved and help empower these women who are doing so much for communities all around Missouri. They are amazing role models and I am so excited Miss Missouri Volunteer has raised so much scholarship money to reward these women to further their education,” said Brooke Sydenstricker McCarty board member from Columbia, MO.
In 2019, Miss Tennessee Volunteer left the Miss America program and founded their own statewide program. Allison DeMarcus, together with a group of dedicated volunteers, expanded that into Miss Volunteer America making it a nationwide service-oriented, scholarship program in early 2021. Through educational scholarships and extraordinary opportunities, the program seeks to empower young women across the country. With philanthropy and scholarship at the forefront, each young woman must have a cause or charity of her choosing that she will champion should she be selected as a titleholder. Miss Volunteer America motivates contestants to create their own unique definition of beauty, the firm belief that nothing is more beautiful than that of a good heart. That belief system is the inspiration and bedrock for the Volunteer program.
