Film & TV Actress Meagan Good Joins Nationwide Effort to “BRIDGE DA GAP”
In 2010, actress and philanthropist Meagan Good (currently starring in the #1 movie Think Like A Man) partnered with long time friend Super Producer Kevin “Khao” Cates (TI, Jay-Z, R. Kelly, Ludacris) in his non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization Bridge DA (Developing Academics) Gap™. Bridge was formed in 2008 after Khao says he had an intense desire to “Be significant rather than just being successful.” At the peak of his multi-platinum music career, stepping out on faith, Khao walked out of the studio and took a year and a half off of music to write the Bridge DA Gap textbook. In the process, he spent nearly one million dollars in two years bringing his vision into reality.
Bridge DA Gap is a text/workbook (written by Khao), CD and DVD curriculum that focus on mentoring and building character in our youth. There are twelve chapters in the book that include such subjects as Self-Esteem, Bullying, Gang Violence, Patience, Self-Determination and much more. Every chapter begins with an overview and ends with solutions. Each song on the CD corresponds with a chapter in the Bridge DA Gap textbook and were all produced by Khao.
Impressed with her friend’s tenacity, Meagan quickly became involved. First by becoming the spokeswoman as well as teaching the curriculum with Khao via the DVD component (that fits seamlessly into any teachers’ lesson plan), then by becoming a Bridge DA Gap board member.
Already in select schools and programs throughout the US, 2012 will be a landmark year for the Bridge DA Gap and the collaborative partnership with Meagan Good whose goal is to further expand the Bridge curriculum throughout as many communities as possible.
Even with her hectic schedule with the success of Think Like A Man, Megan still finds time to Bridge DA Gap. Not one to focus on the problems with our youth, Mr. Cates instead has developed a plan where “the solution is with Bridge DA Gap.”
