"The Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood is where I have learned to be a happier me."

Marie Del Rosario

Youth of the Year

Marie Del Rosario has been a member of the Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood since age 6. At age 8, Marie lost her mother. As Marie and her father struggled to cope, the Club was the only place where Marie could escape the harsh reality of her loss, and also became the place where she discovered her resilience.

Today, Marie serves as the Treasurer of our Keystone Leadership Club. Marie completed her first semester of high school with a 3.0 GPA, and her goal is to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Legal Studies at UC Berkeley.

Marie is passionate about bringing awareness to the issue of young women being “body shamed.” She is determined to help empower young people on a national level to see their inner beauty and love themselves for who they are.
