What is Youth of the Year?
For more than 70 years, Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation have honored and celebrated the most inspiring teens and their incredible journeys. Stories of outstanding leadership, service, academic excellence and dedication to living a healthy lifestyle have made Youth of the Year America’s premier leadership and recognition program for teens. The amazing young people represent the voice and spirit and hope for America, inspiring all kids to lead, succeed and inspire.
Here at BGCSCC, our programs help to foster a new generation of aspiring leaders. This year, we’re bringing our Youth of the Year program to you. Because we’re practicing responsible CDC guidelines, an in-person event just isn’t possible at this time, we’ve created a week-long virtual series to celebrate.
We’re excited to bring this week-long program to our entire membership and community. BGCSCC Youth of the Year week is designed to increase awareness and excitement for Youth of the Year, which is eligible for our teens only, however we’ve created a pathway program to help Club members build toward this teen focused effort.
