Katie Pasilis – 2015 Youth of the Year
The Boys & Girls Club has played a key part in shaping the person I am today. I finally had a place where I felt that I could be the one in control of my life, and there were people there who appreciated me and saw my potential even when I could not see it myself.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have an amazing family to support me, but The Boys & Girls Club is my family too, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
The Boys & Girls Club is and will always be a positive place for kids! The Boys & Girls Club is a place where all youth are given an opportunity that doesn’t come too often.
I am Vianey Serrano the 2004 youth of the year and I stand here ten years later to share with you how the Boys and Girls Club has changed my life.
In many ways the club defined me during my high school years and has most definitely shaped my life as an adult. I gained confidence, skills and a love for working with children and education that have affected all of my life decisions.
The Boys & Girls Club has been there when we needed them and had nobody. I am so thankful to the Club and the Staff that Sara is safe and they are helping her when I can’t.
