Camila S., 2020 Youth of the Year

2021 Youth of the Year Competition 
Virtual Event Date: March 4, 2021
Time: 5:00 pm

The Youth of the Year Award is Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago’s highest local honor, rewarding leadership, service and academic standing.

Each year, Clubs recognize teen members age 14-18, nominating one exemplary member, like last year's Youth of the Year Camila, to compete for the title of Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago’s Youth of the Year.

Our six Youth of the Year candidates, Samantha B., Sammantha C., Yanelli C., Claudia D., Trinity E., and Mariana M., are excited to share their inspiring stories of strength, resilience, and determination with you. 

The silver lining of the event being virtual is that we aren’t space constrained, and anyone can join. However, you must REGISTER below to receive the event link to watch the candidates’ inspiring stories.  

Thank you for joining us, and we can’t wait to “see” you March 4!
