May 8, 2024
Save the Date: New Jersey State Youth of the Year May 8, 2024
The New Jersey Youth of the Year leadership program honors and recognizes the extraordinary achievements of Club teens. Youth of the Year finalists embody the values of leadership, service, academic excellence and dedication to living a healthy lifestyle; they exemplify the critical and life-saving impact Boys & Girls make in transforming and saving kids’ lives.
Each year, local Boys & Girls Clubs select an exceptional young person, ranging in ages from 14 to 18, to represent their Club in an exciting and inspiring journey. Throughout the process, candidates engage in training that help develop their leadership skills to prepare them for the state competition. With hard work, dedication and support from Club staff, nominees progress towards their goal of being selected as the New Jersey State Youth of the Year or State Military Youth of the Year. Youths are celebrated at the New Jersey Youth of the Year Reception on May 8, 2024, where over $50,000 in scholarships will be distributed.
