The Taco Bell Foundation for Teens has added four new ambassadors to help combat high school dropout rates, including NFL player Reggie Bush, singer Megan Nicole, the band Young the Giant and YouTube personality Tyler Oakley.
According to a news release, each partner is making their debut as part of the foundation in their own unique way — whether it's surprising students with a special visit, having lunch with some of their fans or giving teens a summer camp experience.
"We know that not all teens are the same, and not all teens will find inspiration in the same message, delivered by the same person," Amy Kavanaugh, Taco Bell's chief public affairs officer and executive director of the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens. "Therefore, we're partnering with a number of young, talented individuals who come from different backgrounds, have had to overcome obstacles of their own and each have a unique way of relating to teens across the country. Throughout the year, our partners will participate in special events to offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences that help teens find their passion and show them a world of opportunity beyond high school."
