Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Jehlin, the 2021 Middle Tennessee Youth of the Year with Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee, who shares his personal story of growing up in the youth development driven organization. During the interview, Jehlin talks about some of his favorite programs built on the pillars of Good Character and Citizenship, Healthy Lifestyles, Academic Success and Career Success. He also highlights the power of a recent internship, the Club Ambassadors program, heading back to school in the fall, and words of encouragement for the community to support the nonprofit’s efforts.
- Jehlin growing from 4-year-old playing Legos in the Club to representing us at the state level (see TN State Proclamation), going to college, and inspiring other Club members to dream their big dreams
- Club Ambassadors program launching for teens to have a seat at the corporate board and represent their peers
- Back to School 2021 will be the biggest back to school in our lifetime and after school goes hand-in-hand with that. Clubs are open and accessible for when youth need us most.
