Presenting Rosalind, our 2014 Youth of the Year!

Boys & Girls Club of Rochester is pleased to announce that Rosalind Moore has been selected Youth of the Year in a Clubwide competition last month. Rosalind will now represent Rochester in a statewide competition in St. Paul on April 10. From this prestigious group of Youths of the Year from Minnesota, one will be selected to represent our state in a national competition. Last year, only eight teens from across all Minnesota Clubs competed for MN Youth of the Year.

The objective of the Youth of the Year is to recognize exceptional Boys & Girls Club members and give them a voice and path to showcase character, leadership and personal development and critical skills needed to become productive adults.  This movement begins at the local Club level where Club professionals foster the traits that help young people grow into responsible and caring citizens.

Rosalind is a leader at Club and in her community. She is a member of the Word of Life Church, where she participated on their dance team and then used her skills to help choreograph and teach dances for members at Boys & Girls Club of Rochester. She is an Honor Roll student at Mayo High School as well.

At Club, Rosalind was hired as part of the Summer Parks Crew in 2013. Teens selected for this crew undergo a rigorous interview process and Rosalind was a clear choice for the team. Over the summer of 2013, this group went out early every morning four days a week to care for Rochester city parks and Quarry Hill. Her positive attitude was fantastic and she took pride in the work that kept their community clean. 

Rosalind’s leadership has helped our Club programs thrive. The Girl Talk/SMART Girls program at Boys & Girls Club enjoyed success in large part due to Rosalind’s participation and her assistance with the Miss Boys & Girls Club of Rochester pageant. She also helped plan and teach the activities for the Little Divas mentor program.

We are honored to have Rosalind represent Rochester!

Because of her achievement, Rosalind has been awarded $6,500 in college scholarshipsfrom Home Federal Savings Bank, Rochester Post-Bulletin, and Judy & Jim Sloan.
