Youth of the Year presented by Rose Hills Memorial Park and Mortuaries is a cornerstone of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Whittier experience. It is a year-round program that helps Club members become knowledgeable teen spokespersons for their Club and community. The Youth of the Year program celebrates youth who have overcome enormous odds and demonstrated exceptional character and accomplishments. Youth of the Year honorees are recognized for service to their club and community, academic performance and contributions to their family.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Whittier Youth of the Year recognition is the highest honor a Club member can achieve. This year Samantha G. (Whittier High School Junior), Arianna C. (Whittier High School Junior), Maricruz P. (El Rancho High School Junior) and Kaylene R. (La Serna High School Senior) will compete to be named Youth of the Year. The process to become Youth of the Year is extensive for our members. In addition to their school and afterschool duties, the candidates have various requirements they must fulfill to be able to participate in the Youth of the Year program. The winner of our Youth of the Year will be announced on February 7th, 2019 at the Ruth B. Shannon Center at Whittier College. Winner of first round of competition will move forward to Los Angeles competition with the chance of being named Los Angeles County Youth of the Year.
