Youth of the Year

2024 Youth of the Year

The Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year program honors the nation’s most awe-inspiring young people on their path to great futures and encourages all kids to lead, succeed and inspire.

This prestigious scholarship competition asks teens to compose essays and a speech detailing their Club experience, personal brand, and plan for the future. Youth then present their work in front of community judges for the chance to win scholarship dollars to fund their future higher education.

Thank you to our Great Futures Society: Chair Matthew Tursi and members: Bobby Brown, Shea Fuller, Josh Lemon, Nathan Paulsen, Meredith Raduechel, A.J. Salinas, Cam Williams, and Aaron Wills.

For questions about event partnership opportunities or tickets to any BGCCI event, please contact our Director of Donor Engagement & Events Madi Bellile at or 515-242-7925.

Congratulations, Kayleigha!

Kayleigha has been a Club member for five years and enjoys volunteering and playing with her sisters. After high school, she plans to attend college and get a master's degree or doctorate. She sees herself becoming a doctor or running a small business someday.
