NEW YORK, February 15, 2013 — As part of BNY Mellon’s Powering Potential Pathways program, the company said today that its educational video on the challenges of youth aging out of foster care is under consideration for the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship 2013 Film Festival. The video highlights the enormous pitfalls faced by this population and its potential to succeed in education and the workforce.

Through a public vote at http://www.bcccc.net/index.cfm?pageId=2244 now through Friday, March 1, individuals can help raise awareness about this important issue with the click of a mouse.
