Lil Nas X, Taco Bell launch ambitious accelerator program for underrepresented young change makers


Did Lil Nas X and Taco Bell just team up to help young leaders
change the world? Together, the Taco Bell Foundation and the Gen-Z
superstar will launch the Ambition Accelerator, a program created to
support young people as they work to make changes throughout their
respective communities and the world, reports AfroTech.
With the new program, young leaders will  have their wildest dreams
fueled  by having access to the resources that are needed to change not
only their environment but the lives of others, too.
“The Taco Bell Foundation understands that young people often face
significant challenges in making their ambitions a reality – especially
those in underrepresented groups,” said the brand in an official
statement. “This is why Taco Bell and the Taco Bell Foundation have
teamed up with Ashoka, the largest global network of leading social

entrepreneurs, to launch the Ambition Accelerator and provide
equitable access to the resources needed to help others Live Más!”
Applications for the program are currently open until July 21.
Young adults between the ages of 16 and 26 are invited to submit
their social impact ideas for a chance to take their change-making
skills to the next level (Taco Bell team members are also encouraged
to apply).
Lil Nas X and Taco Bell have a deep history.  As a teen, the superstar
worked for the  fast-food chain.  Now, he serves as the brand’s Chief
Impact Officer.
“This is a program for the dreamers and disruptors,”  said Lil Nas
X.  “Be delusional and chase your dreams, and find your support along
the way, which just might be from Taco Bell.”
