Since 1947,Youth of the Year has been BGCA’s premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of our club members. Each year,one exceptional young person from a Boys & Girls Club is selected to be the National Youth of the Year. The National Youth of the Year serves as both an exemplary ambassador for Boys & Girls Club youth,and a strong voice for all of our nation’s young people.
This year the Boys & Girls Club Family Center is proud to introduce Noellena Paez to represent the Club as its 2019 ambassador. She will represent the Family Center at the state Youth of the Year in Worcester, MA and at the Western Mass Youth of the Year Dinner in Westfield, MA.

We wish her the best in all her future endeavors.
