Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club names its ‘Youth Of The Year’



Selected among two outstanding youth, Arlyn Sandoval has been named the Youth of the Year by the Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club. The Youth of the Year title is a prestigious honor bestowed upon an exemplary young person in recognition of leadership, service, academic excellence and dedication to live a healthy lifestyle.

Now in its 74th year, the Youth of the Year program honors our nation’s most awe-inspiring young people on their path to great futures. Sandoval will go on to contend for the Connecticut Youth of the Year title and a $2,500 college scholarship from Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

“Arlyn embodies the true spirit of the Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club and it’s exciting to see a leader both at the club, at school and in the community grow her personal brand,” said Carlos Collazo, executive director of the Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club. “We are excited to have Arlyn represent us at the state level.”

Sandoval remarked, "The need for change in the community starts with our youth; therefore, having them interact in activities will be critical towards producing a united community.”

As the area's leading out-of-school youth development organization since 1963, the Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club (UBGC) fills the gap when school's out for North Haven and Wallingford youth. The outcome-driven club experience helps young people achieve academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.
