Destination Greatness

Celebrate with us!

Destination Greatness is a 24-hr community celebration for Bright Futures happening on March 24th LIVE on our social media platforms. This inspiring give-a-thon invites Austinites to join BGCAA in empowering the next generation of leaders to continue their path to greatness and reach their full potential. Every donation makes an impact in the lives of the youth who need us most and helps BGCAA establish a strong foundation for 2021!  

Celebrating Achievements in Character and Leadership

Through programs such as Youth of the Year (YOY), BGCAA celebrates outstanding teen Members who have overcome obstacles, tirelessly pursued goals, and dedicated their young lives to excellence. Club Members who participate in this annual tradition must prove to a panel of judges that they not only excel in BGCAA’s core focus areas but are also champions for all youth. After a thorough competition of essay submissions, speech presentation, and academic evaluation the YOY winner receives a $10,000 scholarship to cover for post-secondary expenses. Through this program, middle-school and high-school Club youth become motivated to seek opportunities for leadership and act as change agents in their community.

The Youth of the Year competition is a foundational aspect of Boys & Girls Clubs and the values of our mission. This year, we invite you to come along with the 10 outstanding youth as they prepare for the 2021 Youth of the Year competition.

Destination Greatness Begins!
