PulteGroup Announces National Partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America
PulteGroup, Inc. (NYSE: PHM), one of America’s largest homebuilders, has launched a nationwide partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, a leading youth-development organization that provides safe places, caring mentors and life-enhancing experiences for young people across the nation.
The partnership will focus on inspiring kids and teens to achieve academic success and learn about the various career opportunities available in the homebuilding industry. PulteGroup employees will engage in a wide range of volunteer opportunities across 21 states as part of this partnership, including career mentorship, academic support, reading, supply drives, facility cleanups and sports activities. The PulteGroup Charitable Foundation is also making a $150,000 contribution to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
“At PulteGroup, we understand that a better tomorrow requires effort and change today,” said PulteGroup President and CEO Ryan Marshall. “The kids and teens we are investing in through our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs will be the homebuilders and homebuyers of tomorrow. To deliver on our purpose of building incredible places where people can live their dreams, we must do our part to build strong communities, and we are thrilled to begin this new era of impact with the Boys & Girls Clubs.”
The partnership was first envisioned and championed by PulteGroup’s Diversity Board, a group of employees from across disciplines and regions working together to sponsor and evaluate the effectiveness of the Company’s diversity and inclusion work. The board’s mission is to serve the communities where PulteGroup operates and provide opportunities for its employees to be a force for positive change.
“We are excited that PulteGroup is joining us to impart knowledge and share their skills and resources to help young people uncover their potential,” said Chad Hartman, National Vice President of Corporate Partnership & Engagements at Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “This partnership is deeply impactful as Boys & Girls Clubs of America continues to strengthen its support and resources to build great futures for the youth we serve.”
Boys & Girls Clubs of America is on a mission to enable all young people, especially those most in need, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. For more than a century, Clubs have been thought leaders in youth development, providing safe places where kids and teens can develop skills, make lasting connections with mentors, and achieve great futures. In a typical year, Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Clubs serve 3.6 million young people, from rural communities to urban areas, in schools and public housing, Native lands and U.S. military installations worldwide.
