YOUTH OF THE YEAR PROGRAM & 2022 PARTICIPANTS

The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club Youth of the Year is our signature effort to foster a new generation of leaders, fully prepared to live and lead in a diverse, global and integrated world economy. In the 21st-century world and workplace, leadership skills such as communication, goal-setting and teamwork are essential for everyone - especially young people preparing to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood.

The Youth of the Year program is a national Boys & Girls Clubs initiative, exclusively for youth ages 14 to 18. In Greater Houston, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs expanded the program to include 12 and 13-year-olds (JYOY) and created the awards banquet to recognize the recipients. Youth of the Year is a year-round youth development program for Club members ages 12 to 18. Youth that compete must be a leader in their Club, perform community and Club service, speak well about what the Club means to them, and be strong in character. Winners and finalists in each of the divisions earn scholarships for continued education upon graduating from high school.
