Every year, our outstanding members in each age group are recognized during an event at the Ruth B. Shannon Center at Whittier College. In addition, four of our teen members compete for the title of Boys & Girls Clubs of Whittier Youth of the Year 2019.
The winner will represent our Club at the county, state and regional level among other exceptional teens, hoping to become the Boys & Girls Club National Youth of the Year.
This event captures the spirit and mission of the Boys & Girls Club. Guests at the event will listen to moving speeches by the candidates, detailing the impact that the Club has had on their lives. This event recognizes our youth for their outstanding achievements. It is a great honor and wonderful experience for our members and their families to share.
Friends, family, teachers and principals along with community members are welcome to attend this event to honor our youth.
