CAMPER SPOTLIGHT

YOUTH OF THE YEAR

Hi I’m Matt (they/them)! I’m a senior at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts. I’ve been going to Camp Mendocino for nine summers. I’ve been a part of the Club since I was 7 at Columbia Park. At Camp, I was an L.I.T and C.I.T. Outside of Camp, I participated in Camp Council and Camp2College. As a student leader and representative with SFUSD’s Queer Trans Advisory Council (QTAC), I led a workshop on “LGBTQ+ Cultural Acceptance” for over 150 of my peers. After graduating, I plan on becoming a paramedic. A fun fact about me is that I have a 9 month old puppy named Chip that I love to death.

Matt represents Camp Mendocino in the BGCSF city-wide Youth of the Year program. Through Youth of the Year, Matt has been involved in a four month long intense leadership development program that involves public speaking, one-on-one mentorship, essay writing, and team building. At the Charles Schwab Youth of the Year Event in February 2022, Matt will tell their story to BGCSF friends and supporters.
