The Centre on Philanthropy's executive director Elaine Butterfield and Jonathan Lee of Allied World gave speeches and certificates to the honorees.
Jenice Germain, volunteer coordinator at the centre, said: “This shows that our young people are learning to give the gift of time, and we are thrilled that non-profits are providing opportunities for Bermuda's youth to give back.
“Today we are standing in the midst of future philanthropists who will continue to make a tremendous contribution to the community in the years to come.”
The youths receiving thanks were: Rhianna Allen, Mackenzie Costa, Veronica DeGraff, Lauren DeSousa, Nkosi Edwards, John Ewles, Lèa Grandisson, Sophia Hamilton, Jala Hayward, Jamal Hewey, Natalie Lightbourne, Danielle Maloney, Channa McGowen, Emily Medway, Sihle Sharrieff-Hayward, Jessica Swain and Logan Thompson.
