The Boys & Girls Club of the Wisconsin Rapids Area has announced the February Youth of the Month.

The Youth of the Month are selected by the Boys & Girls Club professional staff members on the basis of each student's commitment to academic success, developing good character and leadership skills and living a healthy lifestyle. Many of the students also were selected due to their outstanding participation in the Boys & Girls Club and their contributions to being an outstanding club member.

The January Youth of the Month from the Boys & Girls Club in Nekoosa is Jesus Ontiveros; from the Wisconsin Rapids Baker Unit Samantha Hohmann; at the Wisconsin Rapids Mead Unit, Alecia Nasberg; and from Port Edwards Elementary Club, Natalee Barstow. The Youth of the Month from the Teen Center is Selena Griffith.

We wish to congratulate all of the students who were named as youth of the month. The Boys & Girls Club looks forward to providing outstanding opportunities and club activities throughout 2013, so that our club members can continue to succeed and grow through their club participation. Great futures start here, and we are proud of each of our Youth of the Month club members.

The Boys & Girls Club of the Wisconsin Rapids Area serves the communities of Nekoosa, Port Edwards and Wisconsin Rapids. The mission of the Boys & Girls Club is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The club provides outcome driven experiences with the goal of helping young people achieve academic success, develop good character and citizenship and live healthy lifestyles.

The club uses five key elements to create those outcomes by providing a safe positive environment, fun with age appropriate activities, supportive relationships through trained guidance-orientated professionals, opportunities and expectations through club experiences and recognition that offers praise and positive reinforcement.

Contributed by Robert Wefel, executive director, Boys & Girls Club of the Wisconsin Rapids Area.
