Youth of the Year: For more than 70 years, The Boys & Girls Club of America Youth of the Year program has honored and celebrated the nation’s most inspiring teens and their incredible journeys. Stories of outstanding leadership, service, academic excellence and dedication to living a healthy lifestyle have made Youth of the Year America’s premier leadership and recognition program for teens. These amazing young people represent the voice and spirit of hope for America. Inspiring all kids to lead. To succeed. To Inspire.
Each year, one exceptional Club member is selected to represent the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell as our Youth of the Year, serving as an ambassador for our Club as well as a voice for all of our community’s young people. Club members are recommended to enter the Youth of the Year by staff, then participate in a rigorous application and interview process with members of the community before one of these outstanding young people is named our Club’s Youth of the Year.
