Gonzalo Garcia Awarded Coastal California Youth of the Year 2022-23

For the first time in the history of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clara Valley, a club member has won the title of Coastal California Youth of the Year. Sixteen year old Gonzalo Garcia Jr., who attends Fillmore High School from the Fillmore Clubhouse, competed against 8 other Boys & Girls Organizations on Tuesday March 8th in Solvang California. Gonzalo went through a very rigorous process that included an application, essay, interviews, a speech, and letters of recommendation. Gonzalo will be traveling with Boys & Girls Club staff to Sacramento later this month to compete for the state title of Youth of the Year.

A huge thank you to our community partner, Fillmore Boys and Girls Club, for providing our students with outstanding enrichment and leadership opportunities!

Good luck Gonzalo. We are proud of you!
