Dr Pepper Snapple Group
Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPSG) the national sponsor of Boys & Girls Clubs’ Alumni & Friends, a community of youth advocates and Club supporters that is committed to giving back, helping Clubs serve more members, more often and increasing the impact on kids who need Clubs’ support and guidance the most. Through their three-year commitment, DPSG helped BGCA launch the "Stay Connected" campaign to engage and support new Club alumni who have recently graduated from high school. The "Stay Connected" campaign aims to register graduating seniors as alumni, promote college and career readiness by providing online tools, tips and resources, as well as connect them to a global network of passionate and dedicated alumni who can provide valuable guidance and mentorship.
On May 2, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Dr Pepper Snapple Group will launch a digital yearbook, gathering photos and signatures from Club alumni, donors and supporters. The Alumni & Friends Yearbook will reconnect supporters of Boys & Girls Clubs, having signees upload a picture and share how their Boys & Girls Club helped them become who they are today. Participants can sign the yearbook at www.bgca.org/yearbook.
One lucky Boys & Girls Club alum or supporter who signs the yearbook will win an in-person celebrity experience, a Boys & Girls Club alum, along with a $10,000 cash prize for their local Club. Boys & Girls Clubs have nearly 16 million Club alumni including celebrities like Denzel Washington, Misty Copeland, Shaquille O’Neal and business leaders like Dr Pepper Snapple Group CEO Larry Young. From award-winning actors and professional athletes to community leaders and college students, Boys & Girls Club alumni come from all walks of life but share a common bond through their Boys & Girls Club Experience.
