testimonials from Club alumni
2015 Youth of the Year
The Club literally changed my life. If it wasn't for this place I now call home, I do not believe that I would have found my voice or passion for music. - Alora was our 2015 Youth of the Year and recently graduated from Bowling Green State University.
2013 Youth of the Year
From hours of ping pong to finishing my homework, I simply just wanted to be at the club. You could just come and be yourself and make new lifelong friends. - Jesse was our 2013 Youth of the Year and graduated from the University of Michigan.
2019 Youth of the Year
Through the Club, I discovered the confidence to pursue my passion in owning a business and empowering girls in my community. - Camryn was our 2019 Youth of the Year and is currently attending Northern Michigan University.
