Youth of the Year

Youth of the Year 2020

Each year, one exceptional young person from Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove rises to the role as Youth of the Year, becoming an exemplary ambassador who not only speaks as the voice of Club youth, but also stands up to represent our organization in the community. Youth of the Year participants embody the values of leadership, service, academic excellence and healthy lifestyles; they exemplify the critical impact of Boys and Girls Clubs on the lives of young people. Being named Youth of the Year is the highest honor bestowed upon Club members. This year we recognized a Youth of the Year from each of our 58 Club locations. We then invited 15 finalist to a very special dinner where each were given a cash award/scholarship, a plaque from Kiwanis Club of Garden Grove and a certificate of recognition from the office of Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do. This dinner was made possible by more than 20 sponsors who joined us for the evening. We are happy to announce that Ethan from H.O.P.E. Studios will represent BGCGG at the Orange County Youth of the Year in March.
