Youth of the year

Youth of the Year is the signature leadership development program that celebrates the lives of teen Club members who have overcome incredible odds to make a significant impact on their family, friends and community. With one-on-one mentors, teens receive training in public speaking, essay writing and team building all leading to the local, state, regional and national competitions. Boys & Girls Clubs’ Youth of the Year speaks annually at our Champions of Youth celebration in the Spring. Many BGCOKC Youth of the Year have gone on to win at the state and regional level, winning valuable scholarship money to further their education. Shylen B. is BGCOKC’s 2024 Youth of the Year.
