Youth of the Year

Youth of the Year Logo

Since 1947, Youth of the Year (YOY) has been Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program. To earn the title, Club members must embody:

  • Leadership and Service
  • Academic Excellence
  • Healthy Lifestyle

Youth of the Year

One Club member is chosen as YOY each year. High School members work all year long on this project. While it is a lot of work, the youth find the process very rewarding. Club staff and caregivers/teachers give support along the way. The annual BGCSTC Crystal Ball celebrates the YOY winner.
