2017 YOUTH OF THE YEAR
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area
premier recognition program for Club members
Each year, two exceptional Club members are selected to represent BGCAA -- one as Youth of the Year (high school) and one as Junior Youth of the Year (middle school). The winners will be announced for the first time at our luncheon. Youth of the Year serves as both an exemplary ambassador for Boys & Girls Club youth and as a strong voice for all of Austin's young people.
To achieve the title of Youth of the Year, Club members must embody the values of leadership and service; academic excellence; and healthy lifestyles. They exemplify the critical impact that Boys & Girls Clubs have on the lives of young people.
Join us on Dec. 2 to hear the incredible stories of our youth and be inspired. Invite your friends and colleagues to this important event.
Tickets are $50 each and will benefit the programs and services for all youth involved in BGCAA. Table sponsorships are available for $450. Additional sponsorships are available.
