Most recently, Disney helped fund a national after-school creativity program, interdisciplinary programs and BGCA's Back-to-School campaigns to extend Clubs’ capacity to reach youth with critical educational opportunities in unique and compelling ways. Disney has also impacted generations of youth through its involvement with BGCA's premier Youth of the Year recognition program, an honor that recognizes outstanding contributions to a young person's family, school, community and Club, as well as personal challenges and obstacles overcome.
Disney's legacy of giving seeks to promote the happiness and wellbeing of kids and families.
