meet 2019 Youth of the year, karen villa-torres!

At the Boys & Girls Club, we believe in the importance of recognizing youth for their personal achievements as a vehicle for inspiration, encouragement and success.


Every week, the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Helena and Calistoga recognizes members who excel in our core program areas of Character and Leadership, Education and Technology, Health and Life Skills, the Arts, and Sports, Fitness and Recreation. From these children, a Member of the Month is selected. Of these Members of the Month, a Member of the Year is announced representing our Calistoga Teen Center, St. Helena Unit, and Howell Mountain Unit. The Youth of the Year, the Clubs' highest honor, is awarded to one of these outstanding members. 


These youth are more than they appear; they are cornerstones of what the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Helena and Calistoga represents and strives to produce and encourage within our Up Valley communities.
