Great Day for Kids is the day we announce our Youth of the Year. It is a celebration of our exceptional youth that are chosen by community judges.
The next Great Day for Kids will take place February 1st, 2018. There is no charge to attend and supporters are encouraged to come and celebrate our youth. There will be snacks, beverages and youth performances!
This year, we are grateful to Mission Support Alliance who is sponsoring all local Youth of the Year programs. Thank you, MSA!
Our 2016 Youth of the Year was Zebbie Castilleja, who went on to be the Boys & Girls Club of Washington State Youth of the Year.
Selected among several local outstanding youth, Sebastian Castilleja was named 2016 Youth of the Year for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties. Being named Youth of the Year is the highest honor a Boys & Girls Club member can receive. Sebastian, a senior at Prosser High School, is among hundreds of Youth of the Year winners across the country recognized by Boys & Girls Clubs of America for their outstanding character, leadership skills and willingness to give back to the community.
Sebastian has been attending the Boys & Girls Club for four years and he often speaks of the immense impact that it has had on his life. “It is because of the Club that I have grown to be a servant leader and have been provided with opportunities that would not have been possible otherwise,” states Sebastian.
