In the Keystone Club our teens gain valuable leadership and service experience. Through activities in academic success, career exploration and community service.
Youth of the Year is the Boys & Girls Clubs of America premier youth recognition program for Club members. All members can benefit from participation in this program, which promotes and celebrates service to the Club, community and family; academic performance; moral character; life goals; and poise and public speaking ability. Local Clubs recognize members ages 14-18 who were Youths of the Month and select a Youth of the Year, who then participates in State competition. State winners, who each receive $1,000 scholarships, participate in regional competitions. Five regional winners each receive an engraved plaque and a $10,000 scholarship and compete on the national level. The National Youth of the Year receives an additional $50,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States.
