ABOUT YOUTH OF THE YEAR:
The Boys & Girls Clubs of America Youth of the Year Program is an annual initiative to foster young people’s personal growth and leadership qualities, and the highest honor a Boys & Girls Club member can achieve. Greenwich’s Youth of the Year program was established in 1969 to recognize club members who give back to their club and community. Recipients of the honor have demonstrated service to club, community, and family; academic success; strong moral character; life goals; and poise and public speaking ability.
The Youth of the Year honorees are shining examples and living proof that great futures start at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich. Winners go on to vie for the Connecticut Youth of the Year title and then participate in a regional and national competition. Each year a celebratory event is held where guests gather to witness the announcement of the winner.
