Cassidy Littleton, 21, formerly of Twin Falls, Idaho currently attends Boise State University in Boise, Idaho. There, she is public relations with a focus on political science, and is working to create real change in the foster care system in the U.S. on both a state and national level.
From being a foster care kid at a young age, Littleton was in search of a place that she could truly call home and found it at her local Boys & Girls Club. Even with significant tragedy and challenges in her life, Cassidy became even more involved in her Club as president of the organization’s Keystone Club while also maintaining a 4.0 GPA in school. Through this role and her schooling, she traveled across the country to speak at events and participate in leadership conferences.
She reached the ultimate honor of being selected as Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s 2017 Pacific Youth of the Year winner and continues to use her influence to advocate for foster care reform.
