The Boys & Girls Clubs of America Youth of the Year program has celebrated the inspirational stories of outstanding teens across the nation since 1947, and recognizes members who demonstrate strong leadership and service skills, as well as academic excellence and dedication to living a healthy lifestyle. Earlier this year, 18-year-old Riverview High School Senior Leonela Tase Sueiro secured the local 2019 Youth of the Year title for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County. And this month, Sueiro was selected as the 2019 Florida Youth of the Year.
Sueiro will advance to the Southeast Youth of the Year Celebration at the Georgia Aquarium on June 18 in Atlanta, GA. If she wins the 2019 Southeast Youth of the Year title, she will then go on to the National Youth of the Year Celebration in September at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. The national winner will become a role model, ambassador and spokesperson for 4 million Boys & Girls Clubs members across the United States, receive academic scholarships and have opportunities for life-changing experiences.
