The Boys and Girls Club of America & Sony

by Gina 07/31/2014, in Contact the Blog

For more than 100 years, the Boys and Girls Club of America have led our youth to brighter futures by providing a safe place with mentors and development programs during non-school hours. Serving nearly 4 million young people each year, these programs emphasize academic success, as well as the development of a strong character and healthy lifestyle.

Sony’s a proud sponsor of the Boys and Girls Club of America’s ImageMakers photography program, which introduces members to the art of photography. The annual Image Makers National Photography Contest calls upon club members to capture photographs in four categories: culture and tradition, portraits, surroundings, and photo with essay or poem. 2014’s winning photos were recently announced and can be found here, many of which were captured on Sony cameras. Congrats to all the winners! Our Artisans of Imagery have been getting in on the photogtapher fun too. AOI, Jeff Berlin recently volunteered through teaching a photography class using Sony Mirrorless Cameras at a B&G club event in Los Angeles.

One of the most important times of the day for the Boys and Girls Club of America is 3PM because every afternoon when the 3:00PM school bell rings, 58 Million kids leave school and 15 Million have no place to go. But…when school is out. Clubs are in.

Today will be an especially important 3PM because it launches their “Great Futures” campaign aimed at educating America at the critical issues facing kids. Every action count and we’re asking all of our fans to join in by visiting GreatFutures.org to see how they can help open the door to #GreatFutures for America’s kids.
