Sponsored by Tupperware Brands and established in 1947, the year-round YOY program is BGCA's premiere recognition program. Young people, ages 14 to 18, are recognized for their commitment and contributions to family, school, community and Club.
More than 2,000 Clubs and BGCA-affiliated Military Youth Centers participate in this program, which begins at the Club level, then advances through competitive judging cycles through county, state, regional, and national levels. The program takes into consideration the Club programs and services embraced by the youth, such as character-building experiences, mentoring, financial literacy, healthy life-styles and academic achievement, as well as their personal challenges and obstacles overcome.
Join us to hear our 6 Regional Military Youth of the Year inspiring stories about the impact the Club experience has had on their lives. Youth receive academic scholarships and have the opportunity to represent Boys & Girls Club youth in their communities.
