Tyrese Partners With Coca-Cola To Give Teens A Brighter Future


Tyrese is paying it forward. The Fast 8 star takes it back to where it all started for him, partnering with Coca-Cola for its 2016 Pay It Forward program – which provides with a $5,000 scholarship and a celebrity mentor.

He attended the 2016 Coca-Cola Pay It Forward Academy in Atlanta this past weekend, where he offered life-changing advice to a group of teens. According to a release, he “shared personal experiences of how he overcame challenges, gave tips on how to be successful and reminded them to never lose sight of their dreams.”

The Academy also awarded all 25 teens with a $5,000 scholarship to assist with higher education needs.

“Boots on the ground pointing UP and giving all the glory to God!!!! I love directly exchanging love and inspiration to our future generation,” Tyrese captioned the above photo,which he shared on Instagram. “Congratulations to the 2016 Coca-Cola Pay it Forward Academy scholars! I had an awesome time hanging out with each and every one of you. I can’t wait to see the amazing things you do in this world!”

The Coca-Cola Pay It Forward program celebrates its 5th anniversary this year.
