McDonald’s supports a Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s college readiness program for teens.

Stomp the Yard

McDonald’s supports the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (BGCA) overall mission with a focus on diplomas2Degrees (d2D) - a college readiness program for teens. The d2D program guides Club members as they work toward high school graduation and prepare for post-secondary education and career success. In partnership with McDonald’s, BGCA was able to bring a “Stomp the Yard” experience to our teen members at two Clubs in the Southwest and Midwest regions. During this event, Club teens were given a chance to experience what it’s like to be on campus at a Historical Black College/University (HBCU). Activities included an HBCU college fair and alumni panel, performances, and a live DJ.

The goal is to intrigue students by giving them the chance to  experience what it’s like to be on campus at an HBCU


HBCU reps. will present about the admissions process, scholarships, and school culture
