  • Military Youth of the Year

    Congratulations to Ahsha B. of Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay for her selection as the 2022 Boys & Girls Clubs of America National Military Youth of the Year!!! The MYOY program is a distinct component of the BGCA Youth of the Year program and was introduced in 2013 to recognize outstanding teens served by Military Youth Programs affiliated with the BGCA on military installations worldwide. Ahsha credits her Youth Center for helping her define herself as "authentic, tenacious, and outgoing." Ahsha also credits her Youth Center in helping her become a leader. "A leader is someone who not only succeeds, but inspires others to be the best version of themselves." When asked 'What does it mean to you to be the BGCA National Military Youth of the Year?' Ahsha said, "It is so exciting that I've been blessed with the opportunity to be the voice for all military-connected teens. It also means that I have a responsibility to listen to military-connected teens and their stories, help them understand that they have value, their voices have value, their stories have value, to advocate with them on their passions, and to make a difference in this world."
