2024 Junior Youth of the Year

Celebrating the achievements and dreams of local youth, we’re excited to announce our upcoming Junior Youth of the Year event! This event will occur at the Boys & Girls Club of Appleton on Thursday, April 25.  

Junior Youth of the Year is a Leadership Readiness Program for young people ages 10-14, served through Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley. Through the Junior Youth of the Year, young people develop foundational leadership knowledge and skills to build confidence and overcome challenges. It is a chance for these amazing young people to reflect and clarify their personal values, vision, purpose, and passion. Youth can showcase their talents and achievements, share their hopes and dreams, and work toward their bright and positive future.    

Event Details:

This year’s event is taking place at the Boys & Girls Club of Appleton (located at 160 S. Badger Ave) on the evening of Thursday, April 25. The event reception will begin at 5:30 pm, and the program will start at 6 pm. This event is free and open to the public. No RSVPs are required. The Club will announce this year’s Junior Youth of the Year at the end of the event.
