Meet Taylor, our Youth of the Year!
“Since starting at the Northwest unit in 2009 I have grown tremendously. I go to Club every day for the amazing academic help, awesome encouragement and heartfelt advice that the staff gives me. When I'm not doing homework or talking to my awesome and inspiring mentor, I help out around club by volunteering in various programming areas. I know it sounds cliché but, Club is my second home, and it is honestly a huge part of my success in life. Club has taught me lessons about how to be successful, healthy, do well in school, and how to be a contributing community member. In the future, I plan on becoming a prosecuting attorney for the state and Club is instrumental in my reaching this goal.
Club offers amazing opportunities and I have been presented with the beautiful and honorable opportunity of being an advocate for my Club by being Boys & Girls Club of Rochester's Youth of the Year. It is SO important to me that people understand that Club is an inspiring and great place for kids and teenagers. When I go to Club, I am accepted.
At the end of the day, I will always know that I would not be the same strong, independent, intelligent, and healthy young woman I am today without Club. The staff have supported, loved, accepted, nurtured, protected and educated me. And I am so grateful for that.”
