Johana had no idea what was in store when she joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix. ”I just thought it was a place to volunteer and have fun,” she says. She wasn’t sure if she wanted to go to college — it wasn’t common in her family for women to pursue an education. The pressure of being the first in her family to graduate college was almost too much to handle, but Johana knew she wanted more. With the guidance of our staff, Johana completed high school with a 4.3 GPA and earned a spot as an Honors Student at Grand Canyon University. In early 2013, she was named State Youth of the Year, receiving a college scholarship for all of her academic success and community involvement. In her final year of high school Johana racked up an incredible and inspiring 660 volunteer hours! Today, Johana recognizes that the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix taught her that no matter your background, gender or upbringing, anyone can become a success. Please donate now so that we can continue to inspire kids like Johana.
