Join us as we celebrate our 2018 Youth of the Year Nominees!
Youth of the Year celebrates the remarkable lives of Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco members who have distinguished themselves by rising above challenging circumstances. Each Clubhouse, and Camp Mendocino, chose a teen as their Youth of the Year nominee based on their active involvement in their Clubhouse or Camp, service to their community, commitment to education and modeling of healthy behaviors for younger Club members.
The Citywide Youth of the Year is selected by an esteemed panel of judges at the conclusion of a four-month leadership development program for the nominees. The judging process includes evaluating the nominees’ academic performance, personal statements, twelve references, assessing public speaking skills, and one-on-one interviews with candidate. Each Youth of the Year nominee receives a scholarship for college. The winner is named the Charles Schwab Citywide Youth of the Year, and he or she receives a significantly larger college scholarship and the opportunity to advance to Boys & Girls Clubs’ California Youth of the Year competition.
We inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
