Patterson Named 2015 Youth of the Year!


Congratulations to Jazinae Patterson, a junior at Washburn, who was named Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities 2015 Youth of the Year. We are grateful for her leadership at Washburn and in our community, and we are proud of her accomplishments!


Patterson is a junior at Washburn High School and has been a Club member since the age of nine. "At the Boys & Girls Clubs they believe that all children deserve the opportunity to succeed. They believe that all children, no matter what their circumstances, can have a great future. They believe in me. They have faith in me. Because of this I was able to build trust with more people and see my potential."

"Jazinae is a positive role model to youth across the Clubs," said Erin Carlin, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities. "Between serving as President of Keystone Club (a Club leadership program) and making the honor roll while playing varsity basketball, she also volunteers her time to younger Club members. Every day she goes above and beyond, not only as a Club member, but as a member of our community."
