Boys and Girls Club of Alpena names 2022 Youth of the Year

ALPENA, MI.- The Boys and Girls Club of Alpena has named Skyler Wininger as their Youth of the Year award recipient.

Skyler is a sophomore at Alpena High School. He has been a member of the Boys and Girls Club for 9 years.
He has a desire to change the world and is doing so by his avid volunteer work in the youth volunteer corps. “Don’t wait until last minute to change the world. Do it while you can. Even if it is something little, it doesn’t have to be big. ” he said.

The National Youth of the Year title represents the voice of millions of Boys & Girls Club youth. Looking forward, Skyler plans to continue to encourage others to improve our community.

“I see myself as a leader for new YVC members. Not just a leader, but someone who works with their fellow peers. I want to help them and join them in the process of changing the community.”

Congratulations Skyler! Thank you for the great efforts you’ve put toward bettering our community!
