Local Taco Bell Restaurants Donate Money to Help Fight America's High School Dropout Crisis

Local Taco Bell restaurants awarded $17,235 to Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County to help fight America's high school dropout crisis. This grant award supports real-world experience programs that help teens stay in school and receive a high school diploma. Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County will serve 50 teens through a Graduate to Go experience grant.

The Taco Bell Foundation for Teens grant supports the Boys & Girls Clubs' new and returning Keystone Club members to realize that college is possible. The teens will contact selected colleges and universities to arrange campus tours and invite local school alumni and academic counselors to speak at a Keystone meeting about their college experiences and careers.

"We are honored to be recognized by the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens for our long-time commitment to teen graduation and success," says Zane Smith, Executive Director for Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County. "It's because of partnerships like this that we are able to offer exciting career and college programs that ultimately help inspire our members to stay committed to earn their high school degree, dream big, and be great."
