Congratulations to our October Youth of the Month nominees. We’d also like to give a special thanks to McDonald’s for sponsoring YOM – each Boys & Girls Club member will receive a treat for their accomplishment.

The CLUB

Hadleigh, 10, is the Junior Youth of the Month because, “she is a huge help to staff, always finding ways to keep the CLUB clean and organized. Hadleigh helps her peers during Power Hour, is kind even when she’s having a bad day (which is seldom) and is a great role model and leader at the site.”

Draven, 14, is the Teen Youth of the Month because, “he sets a great example for his peers by coming to CLUB and immediately getting started on his assignments. He has stepped up in a huge way this year, knowing that he is a leader at The CLUB. He is a great friend to those around him and helps out whenever needed.”
