Boys and Girls Club PSAs Celebrate Great Futures



The little miracles that happen every day at Boys & Girls Club of Cornwall/SDG are celebrated in three new public service announcements that were launched today.

Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (BGCC) launched a creative campaign today, celebrating the impact of Boys and Girls Clubs on the lives of 3 accomplished alumni.

Great Futures Start Here features 30-second vignettes about former Club members: #1 NHL draft pick Taylor Hall, #1 NBA draft pick Anthony Bennett, and award-winning child psychiatrist Dr. Jean Clinton.

The PSAs—BGCC’s first in 5 years—illustrate how Clubs create positive opportunities for young people to dream, grow and achieve their full potential.

The Boys & Girls Club of Cornwall/SDG is excited to serve many children and youth each day, and looks forward to seeing our very own Great Futures unfold here in Cornwall and S.D.G.

Top creative talent waived their fees to enable the videos to be developed on a shoestring budget. DARE Toronto, Director David Hicks and Sons and Daughters Productions gave generously of their time and talent, while 20 young members of the Boys and Girls Club of East Scarborough appeared as extras on a very early Sunday morning while the PSAs were filmed at their Club.  See the PSAs here: Boys & Girls Club PSA
