“Helping kids who need us the most achieve GREAT Futures!”

For 27 years, the Great Futures Dinner has been a tradition and serves as Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston’s cornerstone event that unites individuals, corporate partners, top leaders and philanthropic organizations in a joint effort to help youth who need us most.

This premier, annual event raises critical funds to support the overall mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston. This year, through our 15 Clubs located throughout the Greater Houston region, BGCGH will provide more than 12,000 six- to 17-year-old at-risk youth with evidence-based programming after school and during the summer.

YOUTH OF THE YEAR

Carla Trochez
2015 Youth of the Year


Carla is ranked second out of 419 students in Northbrook High School's senior class and maintains a 6.47 GPA.  She is a four-year member of the Spring Branch Boys & Girls Club where she is involved in Keystone Club, a character and leadership program for teens.  She also teaches a nutrition and exercise program, Healthy Habits, to the first through third grade Club members.

Carla is passionate about Healthy Lifestyles and will pursue a career in Dietetics.  She credits her Club for providing a safe and supportive place for her to navigate some of the most unstable times in her life, including her struggle with an eating disorder.  She was able to overcome her struggle with support from Club staff and redefine it by utilizing opportunities to help her fellow Club members maintain healthy lifestyles.

Carla will be celebrated at the upcoming Great Futures Dinner on September 10, 2015.
