More than 40 Topeka teens are now looking ahead to college because of a large grant from the "Taco Bell Foundation for Teens."
The Topeka Boys and Girls Club was awarded the $8,000 grant yesterday.
The funds help support teen programs at the Club that provide opportunities to tour area universities and colleges.
The program also allows teens to explore career tracks and community service programming intended to enable teens to graduate high school.
In July the Boys and Girls Club announced that they were getting the grant.
