As the Official Youth Community Partner of NASCAR, Boys & Girls Clubs of America will work with NASCAR and industry stakeholders to enrich the lives of over 4.6 million youth and teens across the country.

Driving Great Futures and Equity

This long-term partnership focuses on three core areas – STEM education, career development, and diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) initiatives – and extends across all NASCAR platforms and racetracks. Together, BGCA and NASCAR seek to break down barriers and introduce Boys & Girls Club members to the sport to promote curiosity, career exploration and exposure to numerous occupational skills. Programming includes virtual and at-track experiences with an emphasis on local Club locations in NASCAR race markets.

Partnership efforts build on The NASCAR Foundation’s ongoing work to advance children’s well-being, including relationships with several Clubs across the country. NASCAR’s work with BGCA focuses on career development and mentoring across a breadth of industry disciplines including engagement with executives and other employees.

Boys & Girls Clubs deliver equitable access to technology and other resources to help level the playing field and provide youth with opportunities to develop essential skills to grow into leaders, innovators and problem-solvers who shape our world. As young people continue to emerge from the pandemic and navigate virtual learning, year one of the partnership focuses on developing high-quality educational experiences housed on MyFuture, BGCA’a premier digital learning platform.

NASCAR will collaborate with drivers, teams and tracks to amplify the sport’s commitment to BGCA and deepen engagement with Club youth and teens. NASCAR partners have opportunities to integrate with the partnership, and several partners will look to build on longstanding relationships with BGCA.

Impact on Kids

Through partnering with Samsung, we expanded access to the DIY STEM program and developed the Climate Superstars Challenge. The DIY STEM program serves as the entry-point for all members' STEM learning experience at Clubs and provides youth exposure to STEM through five modules: Energy and Electricity, Engineering Design, Food Chemistry, Aeronautics and the Science of Sports: Football. Climate Superstars aims to encourage youth to raise awareness about climate change and motivate them to take actions that help protect the environment.

Samsung's partnership enables interactive, hands-on learning while providing students with new perspectives on STEM careers and access to the latest technology. In addition, our partnership with Samsung goes beyond our programs and includes cause marketing initiatives that help promote awareness and drive donations for the organization. Through exclusive access to unique experiences such as the Las Vegas Galaxy Studio pop-up with singer Kelly Rowland and music producer and artist DJ Marshmello and a Winter Wonderland video production featuring YouTube star Casey Neistat, Samsung helps expand their understanding of STEM and encourages them to be the next generation of creators and innovators.
