Our Annual Signature Events... You are Invited!

Youth of the Year Awards Dinner - February

Since 1947, Youth of the Year has been Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of Club kids. Club members who earn the Youth of the Year title embody the values of leadership service, academic excellence, and healthy lifestyles. Join us for our celebration dinner each year in February as we recognize and celebrate our Salida and Buena Vista Club members. One highlight is our high school and middle school Youth of the Year speeches, where members share what the Club means to them and their personal vision for their future. 

Read the words of 2019 Youth of the Year, Colorado State Youth of the Year and Southwest Regional Youth of the Year, Athena Kintgenhere.
