Youth of the Year Celebration

Our annual event honors Club teens across our community!

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.

Congratulations, Dalilah! Our 2023 Youth of the Year!

Dalilah, a high school senior from our Kennewick Clubhouse, was named our 2023 organizational Youth of the Year at our Youth of the Year Celebration on February 2nd, 2023.
