Power of Youth 2013: Tyler Posey for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Tyler Posey is just one of the five stars being honored at Variety’s 2013 Power of Youth this weekend.

The 21-year-old recently engaged Teen Wolf star is being recognized for his involvement with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for all the right reasons. jcpenney styled Tyler‘s shoot and is also sponsoring the event!

“I initially declined Variety‘s request to be a part of this Power of Youth, as I wasn’t involved in a cause, and I didn’t want to become part of some charity just for the sake of it,” Tyler revealed. “But then the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society approached me, and this was special for me as it mainly focuses on blood cancers — and my family has suffered a lot from cancer — and is largely based on volunteer work, which I think is awesome.”

Tyler added about the organization, “Not only do they deal with blood cancers, but their research has developed into treating other cancers. They’ve raised millions of dollars and invested hundreds of millions into their research, and I feel it’s time they were better known. Whatever I can do to help by being in the spotlight is great.”
