-- On Tuesday, February 25th Team TAG’s top reps Andrew and Ryan attended the Boys and Girls Club Youth of the Year awards at Google Headquarters in Venice Beach, California. The Youth of the Year is the Boys & Girls Club’s premier youth recognition program for Club members ages 14-18. The program promotes and celebrates their service to the Club, community, family, academic performance, spiritual values, life goals, poise and public speaking. The Club’s local Youth of the Year is awarded a $1,000 scholarship and participates in a state competition. State winners participate in a regional competition. Each regional winner receives a $10,000 scholarship and competes on a national level. The National Youth of the Year receives an additional $15,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States. Out of all of the finalists from the Boys and Girls Club of Venice, Idalia Munoz was named the Club's Youth of the Year on February 25th. This was an inspirational event held at Google's new location in Venice. One of Google's very own was a member of the Boys & Girls Club. He had an amazing story about how the Club changed his future and even led him to Google. The children also had great stories with inspiring details on how the club changed their lives. Team TAG is very proud to witness all the accomplishments of the youth at the Boys & Girls Club of Venice. We’re excited to see them grow and do wonderful things for their club and their communities.
