On March 13, Local Teen Leader and Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s National Youth of the Year Surprises Local Youth with Shopping Experience  

Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and Kohl’s are partnering on surprise moments for Club members, including a shopping experience for ten Club teens and career and leadership tips from the Boys & Girls Clubs of America National Youth of the Year.  

In celebration of McAllen’s own Alejandra Llanos being named BGCA’s National Youth of the Year (NYOY), she will lead all surprise moments and shopping experience while sharing advice with the Club’s next generation of leaders. Each year, one exceptional Club member is selected to be the National Youth of the Year (NYOY) from more than four million Club youth, and they serve as an ambassador for Club youth nationwide. Alejandra is from Boys & Girls Clubs of McAllen.  

Ten deserving Club youth will be surprised with a shopping experience thanks to Kohl’s; each youth will receive $250 in Kohl’s gift cards. Alejandra will pass the torch to our future leaders of tomorrow, sharing interview tips, discussing the importance of advocacy and how to continue to make a positive impact in their community.  

In 2022, Kohl’s renewed their commitment to Boys & Girls Clubs of America with a $10 million donation over three years to support the development and delivery of trauma-informed training to Club staff, providing them with the skills to implement trauma-informed practices through formal and informal learning experiences with youth. In addition, Kohl’s is a Signature Sponsor of the Youth of the Year program and events, further supporting youth across the nation. The national partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which was established in 2019, is rooted in Kohl’s commitment to developing and executing critical programming aimed at improving the physical and emotional well-being of children and families.
