Taco Bell Foundation For Teens Expands Its "Graduate To Go Studios" Mentorship Program With A New Location At The Boys & Girls Clubs Of Metro Atlanta





ATLANTA, Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Taco Bell Foundation for Teens today expands its "Graduate to Go Studios" mentorship program with the unveiling of a multi-media Studio at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta's Lawrenceville location. The site is one of four Studios built at Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation, and will include year-round film and music projects, as well as job shadowing opportunities for teens to experience firsthand how their work will apply in the real world.

Nearly one-third of all Georgia students fail to finish high school in four years. In some metro- Atlanta schools, roughly half of students graduate on time. [1] To address the growing need for mentorship, support and resources for Atlanta teens struggling to graduate, the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens in partnership with the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, will provide more than $100,000 in funding this year to support the Studio program at metro Atlanta Clubs.

"Academic achievement is critical to building great futures," said Missy Dugan, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta."'The Graduate to Go Studios' program is interactive, memorable and gives our kids a voice. It allows us to build on the passions and dreams our kids already have and provides them with tools and hands-on experiences they can use in the real world."

During the event, the Vampire Diaries' Steven R. McQueen, Zach Roerig and Michael Trevino, along with music Grammy-nominated producer Kevin "Khao" Cates will share personal stories and experiences as industry professionals and reinforce the importance of helping teens graduate through programs like "Graduate to Go Studios."

"I'm eager to meet and learn from such successful entertainment artists," said Victor Nkwocha, local teen and member of the 'Graduate to Go Studios' program. "To imagine that I could one day be in their shoes is an exciting goal to work toward."

Teens participating in the program will also showcase their video and music projects among the 100 Club members and community leaders attending the celebration.
