Youth of The Year


About Youth of the Year


After four years of virtual events, we were excited to host our 34th annual Youth of The Year Dinner.

Since 1947, Youth of the Year (YOY) has been the Boys & Girls Club of America’s premier recognition program, celebrating the nation’s most inspiring teens and their stories of outstanding leadership, service, academic excellence, and dedication to living a healthy lifestyle. Each year, one exceptional Club member is selected to be the local Youth of

the Year, with the opportunity to progress

to the state, regional, and national levels. Being named Youth of the Year is the highest honor any Boys & Girls Club member can achieve.


The Youth of the Year Awards Dinner is BGCAA’s biggest fundraiser of the year and our premier recognition program for Club teens. Please join us to honor Anne Arundel County’s amazing teens!
