Hernandez has been a member of the Club for two years.

“Being awarded Youth of the Month feels like a big deal and I feel really special being seen as an outstanding Club member,” Hernandez said. “I like everything we do at our Club. I love learning new things and the staff here are super fun to be around.”

Hernandez was selected for his growth since coming to the Club and becoming a beacon of what a Club leader looks like for his peers. 

“Giovannie participates in every activity that is given to his age group of Club Members, often showing a leadership in every game, activity, or program,” Lynn E. Hill, WCBGC Director, shared. “He often tells others in his neighborhood, and as a result, several youths have joined the Club because he has spoken so highly of his local Club. He’s exceptional behavior dubs him the Youth of the Month.”

Lynn E. Hill, WCBGC Director, says he’s seen a change in Hernandez behavior since coming to the Club. 

“As I reflect upon Giovanni, I am elated that the new unanimously agree in selecting him as the Youth of the Month. I have noticed that Giovanni strives really hard to behave and I have also seen him making conscious efforts in every part of the Club,” Hill said. “I have absolutely seen the change in Giovanni’s behavior. When he first arrived at our Club, he was extremely shy and now he has blossomed into a leader amongst his peers. He is one of those kids that you want to have under your care.”
