Youth of the Year candidate 2024

2024 YOY Sponsors - Event and Dinner

Youth of the Year is the Boys & Girls Club of America’s signature recognition program for Club members, by fostering a new generation of leaders and helping them reach their full potential as productive, caring adults.

The Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley’s Youth of the Year process is a comprehensive program designed to recognize and celebrate outstanding Club Members, ages 14-18 years old, who demonstrate leadership, academic success, and a commitment to serving their community. Participants undergo a rigorous process that includes written essays, interviews, and presentations showcasing their accomplishments, goals, and dedication to the Club’s values. Through mentorship and support, candidates refine their public speaking skills and articulate their personal journeys, ultimately vying for the prestigious title of Souhegan Valle’s Youth of the Year. This initiative highlights individual achievements and underscores the transformative impact of the Boys & Girls Club in nurturing the next generation of leaders.

The winner from our Club then represents the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley at the state level, competing against other Youth of the Year winners from across the state. The lucky winners of the state competition then compete at the Regional Level. Shortly after the Regionals the National competition begins. National Youth of the Year receives up to an additional 50,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States.
