Thank you for joining us!
Our 2020 Youth of the Year Celebration was held on Thursday, February 27th at The Brix on the Fox. Nearly 150 guests joined us in celebration of our three outstanding BGCDT youth! Photos from the event are available HERE.
Congratulations to Xsavion Adams, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township’s Youth of the Year winner! Xsavion is currently a Senior at Dundee Crown High School and has been attending Club since 1st grade.
“Club has helped me with my homework and help maintain my good grades,” Xsavion said. “Through Club, I have been involved in programs such as the Culinary Arts, Technology, and Passport to Manhood. These programs, along with the staff, have helped me in my journey,” Xsavion said.
We are excited to see where Xsavion’s bright future takes him.
We are very proud of Becky, Imani, and Xsavion for becoming outstanding Club members, leaders, and mentors in their community, all while attending Club.

Our YOY Celebration was a night packed with performances from our Perry Elementary STEP team, our Sunny Hill Las Palomitas, and a “Million Dreams” by Kajira Blunt and Evan.
Our donors and sponsors were also recognized at this event for all of their support on making an impact in building brighter futures for our Club members.
A big thank you to LAB (Leasing Associates of Barrington) for being our Scholarship Sponsor and providing scholarships to all of our candidates. Thank you to our YOY judges- Will McCoy, Amy Wickstrom, Karen Trzaska, Dr. Martina Smith, Eberto Mora, and Jeff Gorton. And a big thank you to our event sponsors. Without our sponsors, this event could not have been possible.
