KENNEWICK, WA – A teenager at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties Music & Arts Center will soon help shape teen programs across the country.
The organization has selected 14-year-old Monyae Rizzuto of Kennewick to serve on the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s 2014 National Teen Advisory Council. He is one of just 10 teens across the country who will serve on this group.
Throughout the year, Rizzuto will join in on conference calls with staff members from the national organization to review program materials for teenagers. He will also take part in special focus groups and give staff members more insight into the minds and culture of today’s teenagers.
The Boys & Girls Club says Rizzuto’s thoughts and feedback will play a large role in creating and fine-tuning teen programs in the future.
