The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte announced the winner of the Youth of the Year competition. Drum roll for Janae-Rose Fageyinbo winning Salvation Army’s statewide competition. Janae is a senior at Charlotte Country Day and a member of the Sedgefield Boys & Girls Club. We love that she’s giving back through her involvement with Girl Scouts. Plus Janae served as a summer camp counselor and tutored students at her school. She also founded Youth Connect Charlotte, a program that connects court-referred teens with their non-court-involved peers. They discuss their goals and recognize their commonalities.
The Youth of the Year program is Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of its Club members. The winner of The Salvation Army’s state competition goes on to compete in the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s state, regional, and if selected, national competitions. Each level comes with the opportunity to win college scholarships.
