Congratulations to our 2016 Youth of the Year, Elias Miranda! Since 1947, Youth of the Year has been Boys and Girls Club of America’s premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of Club teens. Club members who earn Youth of the Year title embody the values of leadership and service; academic excellence; and healthy lifestyles. They exemplify the critical impact that Boys & Girls Club has on the lives of people.
Elias was selected out of all the youth in the Boys and Girls Club of the Leech Lake Area to represent our community at the state capitol and the 2017 Youth of the Year conference.
He met with Minnesota Representatives and Senators and shared his story with other youth leaders in Minnesota.
