Supporting Youth Through Mentorship, Education, and Arts

Inspired by his experience as a member of The All New Mickey Mouse Club, actor/entrepreneur Dale Godboldo teamed with other former Mouseketeers to found Always In The Club Foundation in support of youth mentoring and the arts as tools in meeting the global grand challenge of universal quality education.

"As a former Mouseketeer, I experienced first-hand the power of mentorship and arts training, and sustained institutional support. I believe that support was invaluable to our self esteem and sense of purpose, laying a foundation that lead to all of our future successes." - Dale Godboldo (Founder)
Dale helped raise money for DVA Production's Young Artist Mentor Program at his Finale Viewing Party of "The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story," in which Dale co-starred as CARL DOUGLAS. The event was held in Dale's hometown of Dallas and sponsored by FOX.
Dale was a presenter at SHAKIRA's Alas Foundation Awards. Here with these EXTRAORDINARY kids who in order to play music, built their instruments from solid waste picked from a landfill near their home in Paraguay. #PremiosALASBID
"The Mouse Club was much more than just a television show, it was a performing arts, entrepreneurship, and leadership academy." - Dale Godboldo

The MMC's breeding ground for success can be replicated and enhanced to reach millions of young people as an inspiration, and example, of the power of sustained institutional support for our youth.

Project:NOW partner The Beacon Network is a unique educational model within Denver Public Schools, committed to the high achievement and growth of every student. We are part of an Innovation Management Organization that allows for an Executive Principal to oversee the two schools currently in the network — Kepner Beacon Middle School and Grant Beacon Middle School. The Beacon Network has the potential for future growth and may add more schools.

Beacon schools provide a college preparatory program of study that sets high expectations and requires critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Through the collaborative work of students, staff, families and community partners, Beacon schools bring together diverse communities and prepare students with the academic knowledge and 21st century leadership skills necessary for college and career success.

Project:NOW was launched in 2014 with program development and ongoing support from Chelsea Clinton and President Bill Clinton.
