Since 1947, Youth of the Year has been Boys & Girls Club of America’s premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of Club teens. Over the years, these individuals have exemplified the Boys & Girls Club mission and are proof to the impact Clubs make in transforming and saving kids’ lives.
Candidates who have competed in the YOY Academy and Competition, have gone on to great success.YOY is arguably one of the most impactful and rewarding events of the year!
Siosifa from the Waianae Clubhouse was named the 2021 Youth of the Year Winner!
On Saturday, March 6, the 2021 Youth of the Year was announced during our virtual celebration! Siosifa T. from our Waianae Clubhouse was selected from a group of five exceptional youth and will now move on to the Hawaiʻi State Youth of the Year held at the State Capital on March 30! That winner goes on to compete in the Pacific Regional competition in summer of 2021. Having a dedicated program to celebrate teens whose Club experience has empowered them to find their voice and achieve success is what the event on March 6th was all about.
Your support of Club youth allows for the sponsorship of the next great success story. We could not have done this without you so mahalo piha for all you have done, and all that you continue to do for our youth!
