The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of North and South Carolina and the Carolina Panthers have announced a multi-year marketing partnership, generously underwritten by Transportation Insight, North America’s leading supply chain management firm based in Hickory, NC. The partnership creates a workforce development program for the club’s children and youth. Prior to Panthers preseason and regular season home games, club members will tour Bank of America Stadium to learn about jobs from the box office to concessions to sports medicine and more. After the tour, club members will head to their seats to see the Panthers in action on the field. The partnership supports the workforce development strategy of the Boys & Girls Clubs, which gives children a chance to explore careers, develops essential life skills, and provides opportunities to learn and demonstrate job skills in a real-world work experience.
