In September, the Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park was recognized by Boys & Girls Clubs of America for “exceptional program growth and excellence”. The Gold Level Award was presented to Club CEO Todd Trout by Boys & Girls Clubs of America President Jim Clark. Bridgestone Tires, a national partner, presented our Club with a $12,000 award to further our growth and program needs. It was such an honor to receive the Gold Standard Award out of 1,000 clubs in the Pacific West region. Structured activities, such as our wood shop, rock climbing/rock wall program, fine arts club, and Teen Leadership and Money Management program are all leading the way in the services we offer over 1,000 youth and teens every day.
There are over 4,000 Boys & Girls Clubs in America. In Orange County, there are 15 Clubs representing cities from South Orange County (San Clemente) to North Orange County (La Habra). In June, our Program Director Luz Trout was selected for the Dos Manos Award (Orange County Professional of the Year) out of all 15 Clubs in Orange County. Luz has been working at the Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park for the past 14 years and has received national recognition and numerous awards for our Teen Leadership Programs. Adding the Professional of the Year is an honor well-deserved for the countless hours and lives she has impacted.
The Club’s 2019 Youth of the Year event is coming up on January 25, 2020.
