At the annual Clubbies Awards Night event in late January, the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe announced the 2019 Club Youth of the Year, Amalia van Peborgh.

Van Peborgh is a senior at North Tahoe High School and has participated in programs at the Club such as Chop Shop, the Great Futures Productions musical theatre program and SMART Girls. At the Clubbies Awards Night, she shared the story of her experience at the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe from the time she started as a kindergartener, all the way through to her current experience as a teen in the Club’s Teen Center.

She was also awarded the Club’s $1,500 Youth of the Year Scholarship at the event. Prior to the Club’s announcement about her title as Youth of the Year, she wrote an essay and a speech about her experience with the Club as part of her application process. Club staff then reviewed Amalia’s application materials and were all in agreeance that she exhibits all the qualities of a Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year candidate.

Van Peborghwill now join outstanding youth from Boys & Girls Clubs across the state to share her story and the impact the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe has made in her life. At the state competition, she will have the potential to earn the state title of Youth of the Year today in San Francisco. If chosen, she will receive another scholarship, $5,000 from Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and go on to contend for the regional Youth of the Year and ultimately National Youth of the Year.
