On Thursday, February 17th, Tenderloin Clubhouse member, Paulina C. was named Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco’s 2022 Citywide Youth of the Year. As the Citywide Youth of the Year, Paulina will receive a college scholarship worth $10,000 and will advance to compete in Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Northern California Youth of the Year competition.
Paulina is a 11-year member of BGCSF who credits supportive and caring staff, and their involvement with teen leadership programs, the visual arts, and Camp Mendocino as key aspects of their fulfilling Club experience. An outstanding academic student, Paulina intends to graduate from high school this spring and will attend Colgate College on a four year scholarship in the fall.
Each year, we are inspired by the resilience, courage, hope, and talent of our Youth of the Year. We are tremendously thankful for such strong support!
