What Does It Take to be Youth of the Year…
Youth of the Year has become America’s premier leadership and recognition program for teen Club Members. This nationally recognized program has a real impact on developing great futures for young people. Through an application and interview process, “Youth of the Year” candidates are selected by a local panel of esteemed judges based on leadership qualities, service to the community, academic achievement, letters of recommendation, obstacles overcome, written essays, poise, and public speaking.
Some of the Benefits and Honors…
Our six Clubhouse Boy and Girl Youth of the Year Winners will be awarded scholarships to assist them in their academic pursuits. One candidate was selected by a panel of judges to represent the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson in the State of Arizona Competition in Phoenix in April. Our 2017 “Mark Irvin City of Tucson” Youth of the Year is Karla Figueroa Leon.
