Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs’ premier recognition program designed to celebrate and 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. With a grassroots beginning in 1947, Youth of the Year has evolved into a comprehensive leadership development program
Behind the Scenes
Lights. Camera. Action. To prepare for the YOTY event, Fritzy had her first professional headshots taken, went on a shopping spree at Maurices, and got her hair and makeup done by a stylist.
