One of the things that I think is important for the success of our youth is the opportunity to intern/apprentice in areas that that they are interested. That is why I want to share the Coca-Cola Pay it Forward program with you. This program provides young people with the chance to apprentice with prominent African Americans. This is the third year of the program and two young adults will be working with comedian, philanthropist and media mogul Steve Harvey. Steve has a serious commitment to young people so it is no surprise to me that he is participating in the Coca-Cola Pay it Forward Program. In addition to the apprenticeship, winners will also receive $5000 scholarships!
This program is open to young people from 16-21. You can nominate yourself or someone else by visiting the Coca-Cola Pay it Forward website. Check out the video from Steve Harvey below!
