Excerpt from a Youth of the Year Candidate Essay 3

" I got older, I found myself getting into trouble a little bit more. One day I got in trouble for being disrespectful and was sent to talk to the Executive Director, Garreth. I was upset during our conversation and I remember asking him, "why do you like running this place?" Garreth told me something I will never forget. He said, "I don't run the Club. The kids do, the members so. I just keep everything going". I didn't really get into trouble after that, and if I did, I would usually go talk to Jarrod or Tim (staff at the Club), who would always help calm me down."
