The secret to every Boys & Girls Club’s success is the passion, caring nature and skills of youth development professionals. Every day, they welcome kids with a smile, ever committed to help every child and teenager achieve their full potential. As YDP MVP, Raytrell takes home $10,000 for his Club, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne/Johnston Counties in North Carolina. As YDP MVP, he also wins a trip New York City to see Club alum and BGCA National Spokesperson Denzel Washington on Broadway in “The Iceman Cometh.” Congratulations, Raytrell!
