Coca-Cola’s Double Major This Semester? Education And Recreation

Students across the U.S. spend their days focused on their studies. At the end of the day, these students head to recreation centers and parks to re-energize their minds and bodies with fun fitness activities. With help from Coca-Cola, these students and their communities will get a jumpstart in the classroom, at local parks and beyond.


A grant to the Posse Foundation’s Pre-College Training Program will help 300 high school students develop their college skills through teambuilding, cross-cultural communication, leadership and academic experiences. Support to the Apollo Theater Academy will provide arts and entertainment career development programs to more than 2,000 New York City high school students.

Additional education-based grants will help expand the Coca-Cola First Generation Scholarship program to the Culinary Institute of America, the Jackie Robinson Foundation and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. The Coca-Cola First Generation Scholarship program supports students who are the first in their families to attend college.


Through this quarter’s grants, nearly 25,000 youth and families will have access to healthy living and nutrition education programs. Organizations like Youthplaces, Houston Bike Share and Boys & Girls Club of Las Vegas will all benefit.

Youthplaces will provide after-school healthy living programming throughout Pittsburgh. Houston Bike Share will give local residents and visitors access to bicycles for trips throughout downtown. Bikes are equipped to track miles traveled, calories burned and carbon emissions avoided. The Boys & Girls Club of Las Vegas received support for its Triple Play – Healthy Habits for High Achievers program. This program, which stems from the national Boys & Girls Club of America Triple Play program, focuses on balanced eating, fitness and healthy relationships.

“Our Foundation work is not with just one partner or through just one model,” said Lori George Billingsley, Vice President, Community Relations, Coca-Cola North America Group. “It is only when we come together with different partners and organizations that we can make a meaningful impact on each communities’ particular needs and priorities.”
