Toyota and Boys & Girls Clubs of America have teamed up to help kids graduate and achieve a great future. By collaboratively developing the new “Diplomas to Degrees” curriculum, or “D2D,” more than 20,000 teens will have access to educational tools and resources to help them graduate from high school – and pursue post secondary education – over the next five years.
THE TOYOTA WAYFor more than 50 years, Toyota has brought the “Toyota Way” principles – Respect for People and Continuous Improvement – to community organizations in the United States. As a corporate citizen, Toyota remains committed to helping improve the quality of life in our communities through service and re-investing in the communities that we live and work.
MAKING LIFE EASIER FOR YOUTHSince 2007, through the Toyota Financial Services (TFS) “Making Life Easier for YOUth” program, Toyota has provided local Boys & Girls Club alumni and staff with resources to help ensure that all children have access to a quality education. TFS has provided close to $1 million in academic scholarships for more than 225 Boys & Girls Club alumni and staff and supported thousands of middle and high school youth with mentorships, internships and financial or career programs to help them become productive and caring adults. To expand on these efforts, Toyota announced its partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 2011 to develop a new program called Diplomas to Degrees. The program will enable Toyota volunteers to partner with their local Boys & Girls Clubs to implement engaging curriculum and mentor the participating college-bound teens. The program launched in September 2011 in ten U.S. cities with approximately 400 teens. The program is scheduled to expand to all Boys & Girls Clubs in late spring of 2012.
