Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

Every child follows a path in life. For many, that path will lead them to a door. A door that gives them a place to grow, to learn, to belong. A place to forge their future. For 100 years the Boys and Girls club have opened this door for America's youth. 'Cause while many doors open, these doors transform. They did for us. Support your local Boys and Girls Clubs. Great futures start here. 
 
(Lyrics) I wanna leave a footprint on the sands of time 
Know there was something that meant something that I left behind 
When I leave this world, I'll leave no regrets 
Leave something to remember so they won't forget 
I was here 
I was here

Written Text

Be Great.
