Youth of the Year Celebration Luncheon
Thursday, February 27, 2014 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (EST)
Grand Rapids, MI
When Daniel walked away from a gang, and followed his brother Cesar to Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth, he did more than find a safe place. He did more than join a club, and plan his academic future at University of Michigan. Daniel chose to commit himself to his community, and strive for personal growth. His leadership, courage, and dedication lead to his nomination for Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth Youth of the Year. From there, he stood with nominees from other states for a chance at national recognition their service. But regardless of this title, Daniel has already discovered his limitless potential to effect change, and made the decision to invest that potential in his community.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth dedicates itself to developing the youth of our community by helping them discover their true potential. Our year-round program focuses on giving people like Daniel the support and encouragement they need to serve their community, and make a difference for themselves and others. The Youth of the Year program honors their strength of character, conviction, and determination to make a better world.
