Taylor Penny and Genesis Mena received 2012 Youth of the Year honors for contributions to the organization and the community.
Penny, a senior at Oxnard High School, joined the Boys & Girls Clubs when she was 9, after her family moved to Oxnard from Las Vegas. According to a statement from the club, she experienced poverty and watched her parents and sister struggle personally and professionally.
