Parents, Club members, and Staff packed into Club to watch the finalists give their speeches and address the judges. Congratulations Steven W. and Taylor J. on being named 2018 Jr. Youth of the Year! The Appo Club is proud of all their Jr. Youth of the Year participants: James, Steven, Taylor, Nina, and Taylor.
Through the Jr. Youth of the Year program, members learn to support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image, and respect the cultural identities of themselves and others – all the while allowing members to practice and improve their public speaking skills.
Jr. Youth of the Year is a great event to bring parents, Board Members and the community together to celebrate the accomplishments of the participants. Appoquinimink Boys & Girls Club would like to thank this years distinguished panel of Jr. Youth of the Year judges for their commitment to the Jr. Youth of the Year program.
