ANAHEIM, Calif., July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navient, a leading provider of education loan management and business processing solutions, has extended its multi-year partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, a seasoned leader in youth development, and sponsored the organization’s teen-led National Keystone Club Conference this past weekend in Anaheim.
The Keystone Clubs provide leadership development opportunities for young people between the ages of 14 and 18, including activities in three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service.
In 2021, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, with Navient’s support, launched a new digital program to help young people and their families learn about financial aid and how to pay for college. This online program expanded Diplomas to Degrees, Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s well-established college readiness program, to guide high schoolers through their postsecondary education and career planning journeys.
Navient also supported Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s 2021 launch of Roadmap to Careers, a career exploration tool that helps young people develop a plan for their future, using their personal interests and college and career planning data as a guide.
“Boys & Girls Clubs of America is committed to preparing young people to be the leaders, innovators and problem solvers who will shape our world,” said Jim Clark, president and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “We are thrilled to have Navient’s support in providing career exploration tools and resources to help youth build essential skills so they can thrive as they prepare for the future.”
