While we’ve been off enjoying summer vacation, some celebs have been hard at work–and we don’t mean just filming movies and stuff (although that, too). A few have been busy advocating for access to a quality education. See what they’ve been up to and, as a BONUS, we’ve included their yearbook pictures! (So cuh-yooot!)
+ Matt Damon
You heard about Matt’s efforts to Save Our Schools last week on the blog. But check out how he spent one summer vacation weekend when a reporter asked him about public school teachers: watch the video.
+ Jennifer Lopez
Jenny From The Block took time (and pictures) to remember where she came from–her local Boys & Girls Club of America. She credits the organization and their after-school programs for her success in school and on the dance floor.
+ Justin Bieber
This summer, the Biebs rallied his army of Beliebers for Pencils of Promise’s Schools 4 All campaign, raising a whopping $293,425. While the cash will go to build 14 new schools, Justin will go visit the top fundraising school once the first bell rings this fall.
