Youth of the Year Celebration

Our 2023 celebration will be held February 2nd!

Join us in recognizing our outstanding teens during our annual Youth of the Year celebration!

Youth of the Year is America’s premier leadership and recognition program for Club teens. Each year, thousands of Club teens participate in local, state, and regional Youth of the Year events. National Youth of the Year winners have achieved success in a variety of industries, including entertainment, politics, business, and sports. Becoming National Youth of the Year is an exciting and inspiring journey.

Each year, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties hosts our local Youth of the Year Celebration at our Kennewick Clubhouse – Eerkes Family Branch.
