Youth of the Year

The 2017 BGCMA Youth of the Year Fundraising Gala

Join us for this year’s Youth of the Year Fundraising Gala – a night celebrating the rising young leaders at Boys & Girls Clubs across the city.

During the event, you will have a chance to hear speeches from our kids about where they started, how your support has helped shaped who they are today, and what big dreams they have for the future. We will also present our organization’s most prestigious honor – Youth of the Year – to one deserving teen.

Our Talented Young Leader

Our Leadership Program

Youth of the Year is a year-round character and leadership program that recognizes Club members who demonstrate academic achievement, leadership skills, and service to the community. These teens are giving back and devoting themselves to their Club, school, family, and community.

The Youth of the Year competition is open to all Boys & Girls Club members ages 14-18. Each Club honors one young man or woman every month and then chooses one outstanding youth to represent their Club at the annual Youth of the Year Awards & Dinner Celebration.

Scholarships are awarded to all participants, with higher level awards given to the top finalists and the Youth of the Year winner.

The Metro-wide winner will go on to compete at the state level and potentially the regional and national levels with national winners getting a chance to meet the President of the United States.
