Our youth today face immeasurable challenges, especially in the neighborhoods we serve. Despite all of the obstacles, our kids at Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids are full of passion, intellect, and capabilities for bright futures. We especially see just how incredible youth are in our 2020 Youth of the Year candidates; Larissa Clay, Dymond Cummings, Justyce McIntosh and Marvin Johnson.
Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program. It celebrates young people, ages 14 to 18, for their commitment to community service, academic success, good character and citizenship, and establishing long-term goals. Local winners receive a scholarship and go on to compete at the State and possibly Regional and National levels.
Congratulations to our candidates for being nominated for the 2020 Youth of the Year celebration. Know that you have all the potential in the world and Boys & Girls Clubs of GR can’t wait to see what you do with it.
Save the Date for our annual Youth of the Year Luncheon on March 10, 2020! We will be celebrating all of our candidates and announcing our 2020 Youth of the Year winner.
