There are many young people with big dreams that don’t know which path to take. Sometimes these kids get lucky and become successful, but sometimes they need a helping hand. These are some great kids who work hard and strive to achieve their dreams. I know one of those kids who could be really great and we did our best to help him early in 2012. We brought him into our home, fed him, clothed him and took care of him like he was our own child. He did successfully get his GED while staying with us which was wonderful. Unfortunately he decided to move on and took away the opportunity we had to really help him to the fullest. Although I am sad that it didn’t work out, I am still thankful that I had the opportunity to pay it forward when I did.
Coca-Cola knows that there are plenty of struggling youth out there who deserve a helping hand. That’s why they are sponsoring the Coca-Cola Pay It Forward program through My Coke Rewards. It is a great contest where four young people (ages 16 – 21) will win a unique and exciting apprenticeship experience. The 2013 mentors that will be working with the winners are pictured below. What a great group!
Coca-Cola’s Pay It Forward program has already started and will run through March 2, 2013. You can nominate a young person in your life who deserves the extra boost to get started on the right track. Mentors, coaches, parents, friends – any adult can nominate that special young person in their life. You can nominate up to five young people (the young person can also nominate himself/herself) and be entered for a chance to win a $5,000 sweepstakes with each nomination!
