Youth of the Year

The Youth of the Year program, which has been nationally sponsored by the Reader’s Digest Foundation for 60 years, recognizes outstanding contributions to member’s family, school, community, and The Youth & Family Club, academic excellence, and personal challenges and obstacles overcome.

Past Youths of the Year have said, “The simple things… talking with other members- young the older alike, the stories we share… that’s what I find to be the most fun.  I look forward to fun, play, and work at the club.  I work hard to show the other members the best way of being, and the maintenance of our club and its programs.  After all, the club is my second home… I feel safe and protected here. I can say that our club really helps its members accomplish their goals…. I know it certainly has helped me to succeed-it offers and opportunity that just doesn’t exist anywhere else.”
