On March 7, thousands of Chicagoans turned out at the 2019 Boys & Girls of Chicago’s Youth of the Year Event. Joshua H., a member of the Louis H. Valentine Club for more than 11 years, took home the night’s top honor, Youth of the Year. In the future, Joshua, who’s been heavily involved with the club’s Passport to Manhood program, hopes to continue working to quash the stigma surrounding emotional expression and masculinity.
