What is Youth of the Year?

Youth of the Year celebrates the remarkable lives of Boys & Girls Clubs of Conejo Valley members who have distinguished themselves by rising above challenging circumstances. Each Clubhouse, choose a teen as their Youth of the Year nominee based on their active involvement in their Clubhouse or Camp, service to their community, commitment to education and modeling of healthy behaviors for younger Club members.

The Citywide Youth of the Year is selected by an esteemed panel of judges at the conclusion of a four-month leadership development program for the nominees. The judging process includes evaluating the nominees’ academic performance, personal statements, twelve references, assessing public speaking skills, and one-on-one interviews with candidate. Each Youth of the Year nominee receives a scholarship for college. The winner is named the Charles Schwab Citywide Youth of the Year, and he or she receives a significantly larger college scholarship and the opportunity to advance to Boys & Girls Clubs’ California Youth of the Year competition.

History of the Program

The Timeline

From October to January, the Youth of the Year take part in an intense leadership development program that involves public speaking, one-on-one mentorship, essay writing, and team building. With the help of our caring staff and volunteers, these youth grow and flourish into confident leaders with inspirational visions and goals for their futures.

At the Charles Schwab Youth of the Year Luncheon in February 2020, each youth will tell his or her story to more than 800 BGCSF friends and supporters at The Marriott Marquis.

The Citywide Youth of the Year moves on to represent BGCSF in the Northern California Regional competition against other well-accomplished youth in the region. The judging criteria for the event consists of public speaking, performance in a one on one interview, service to the Club, and community and academic achievement.
