We continue to monitor all updates from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Connecticut State Department of Health for updated information. We are advising all of our staff, families, and youth members to take precautions recommended by the CDC, as well as providing additional resources like handwashing guides, at-home teaching resources and information about how to talk to young people about the spread of COVID-19 via our social media accounts: & We will continue to monitor the issue and will provide additional guidance to our community stakeholders as we learn more.

National Youth of the Year

Each year, one exceptional Club member is selected to be the National Youth of the Year, serving as an ambassador for Boys & Girls Club youth as well as a voice for all of our nation’s young people. Over the decades, these individuals have exemplified the Boys & Girls Club mission and are proof to the impact Clubs make in transforming and saving kids’ lives. National Youth of the Year winners have achieved success in a variety of industries, including entertainment, politics, business and sports.

Becoming National Youth of the Year is an exciting and inspiring journey. Each year, thousands of Club teens participate in local, state and regional Youth of the Year events. Six teens, including five regional winners and a national military youth winner, advance to Washington, D.C., for the National Youth of the Year Gala & Celebration Dinner, where one outstanding young person is named Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s national teen spokesperson. The National Youth of the Year is a role model, leader and advocate for the nearly 4 million youth served by Boys & Girls Clubs each year, and all of America’s young people.

This year we’re proud to announce that 4.0 Hillhouse High School student, Keystone President and 11 year Club member, Jesse Campbell has been selected as the as the Youth of the Year for New Haven! He’ll go on to compete against other Youth of the Year members across the state and hopefully the Country! Congratulations Jesse!!!
