The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County is to
inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most,
to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
Every year the Boys & Girls Clubs of America reaffirms this mission by celebrating exemplary youth in Clubs across the nation with the Youth of the Year program. The Youth of the Year journey begins locally when youth, nominated by Club staff and peers, accept the challenge to rise above their circumstances and make positive changes in their lives, Club, and community.
This year the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County are pairing these exceptional teens with adult mentors or GREAT BIG KIDS who will share in the Youth of the Year journey. Created as a way to foster positive relationships between adults and teens and create advocates for the Club, GREAT BIG KIDS is an opportunity we are truly excited about. This new initiative will allow our community’s
GREAT BIG KIDS to support the Boys & Girls Club in two ways:
as a mentor to a youth member and as an advocate for the Club.
Join us at the Youth of the Year Dinner to find out the
