About Youth of the Year

Youth of the Year is a year-round program focused on the development of Boys & Girls Club members as community leaders and begins at the local level as each Club offers its teens the opportunity to apply. Finalists from each of our programs compete to become the organizational Youth of the Year. Candidates are evaluated on a number of criteria including academic performance, service in the community and the Club, public speaking, and essay writing.

Several thousand dollars in scholarships and prizes are awarded to the youth who participate in the organizational competition. Each of these outstanding Club members will serve as spokespersons for the Boys & Girls Clubs in the coming year. The Youth of the Year winner will have the opportunity to compete with other Club members on the state, regional, and national levels, earn additional scholarships and meet the President of the United States.

Youth of the Year will be held on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.
