    Anthony Bennett, #1 NBA 2013 draft pick

    This video by Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (www.bgccan.com) imagines Anthony Bennett as a young boy to show how Boys and Girls Clubs create positive opportunities for children and youth to dream, grow and achieve their full potential. Bennett was the NBA’s #1 draft pick in 2013 and is a former member of Jane and Finch Boys and Girls Club in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The basketball star currently plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves and is a proud supporter of Boys and Girls Clubs. The national charity, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (BGCC), launched a series of 3 public service announcements celebrating the impact of Boys and Girls Clubs on the lives of some of its accomplished alumni.

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

    The national charity has a 110-year history of supporting young people’s healthy development, which helped attract top creative talent to produce the videos on a shoestring budget.

    DARE Toronto, Director David Hicks and Sons and Daughters Productions generously waived their fees on this project. Twenty young members of the Boys and Girls Club of East Scarborough also contributed to the making of the PSAs by showing up very early on a cold and snowy Sunday morning in November to be extras in the PSAs filmed at the Club.

    Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada is dedicated to supporting and encouraging children and youth as they grow and develop. We are a national charity serving 200,000 young people in 650 locations across Canada. We listen to their opinions and ideas, applaud their accomplishments, lend support during their struggles and provide ways for them to explore their interests and talents. With this encouragement, young people develop the confidence and sense of belonging that helps them succeed in school, form positive relationships and mature into responsible, caring adults. For over 110, years we have welcomed children, youth and their families into clubs that reflect the diversity of Canada in small and large cities, rural communities and First Nations reserves.
