Exciting news! Tanzil, from our Sammamish Club and the 2024 Boys & Girls Clubs of King County Youth of the Year, won the title of 2024 Youth of the Year for Washington State – how awesome is that?!

Tanzil is a senior in high school and a standout leader at our Sammamish Club. She’s made a huge impact as her Keystone Club president and is committed to equity and elevating youth voices.

In late May, Tanzil and Omar Lariz, her mentor from Boys & Girls Clubs, will travel to Los Angeles, where Tanzil will participate in the Pacific Region Youth of the Year celebration. Representatives from Clubs throughout the West Coast will gather together as they compete to represent the Pacific Region at the National Youth of the Year competition.

Congratulations to Tanzil, Omar, and the whole Sammamish team for this amazing achievement!
