Beyoncé and JAY-Z are teaming up with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to change teenagers’ lives across the country. The music superstars are awarding 11 $100,000 scholarships (through the BeyGOOD and Shawn Carter foundations) to send 11 exceptional Boys & Girls Club members with financial need to college.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America was chosen to select the 11 high school seniors because of the role Clubs play in young people’s lives. Nationwide, Clubs help kids to recognize and pursue their full potential, providing 4.3 million youth a year with opportunities and new experiences they may not otherwise enjoy. Boys & Girls Clubs believe deeply that a child’s background or the circumstances surrounding them must not limit their access to opportunities that can change their lives for the better.
