Press Release - Office on Youth Receives Additional Grant Award from the Bama Works Fund

ORANGE COUNTY OFFICE ON YOUTH RECEIVES ADDITIONAL GRANT AWARD FROM  THE BAMA WORKS FUND OF DAVE MATTHEWS BAND

IN THE CHARLOTTESVILLE AREA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION (CACF)

 

Orange County, VA – The Orange County Office on Youth is pleased to announce it has been awarded another round of grant funding from the Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band in the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF) for $5,000 to further its mission to promote positive youth development. 

 

The grant funding will allow the Office on Youth to purchase educational materials from Drunk Busters of America, LLC for drunk driving/distracted driving prevention efforts.   Specifically, the Office on Youth plans to acquire Drunk Busters Pedal Karts and Impairment Simulator Goggles to incorporate into regular programming and to grow additional programming opportunities to teach youth, and in many cases adults, the dangers associated with drunk driving/distracted driving.  The materials will offer a hands-on, real-time means to educate and leave a lasting impression in the minds of Orange County youth. 

In 2016, the Orange County Office on Youth received a grant award from the Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band to purchase and utilize APRIL® Face Aging Software, which applies scientific age progression technology to show the differences between natural aging and aging after lifelong use of tobacco and other risky behaviors.

 

The Orange County Office on Youth is thrilled to be able to continue offering both customized and meaningful ways to educate youth on a personal level. 

 

For additional information about the mission of the Orange County Office on Youth or the Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band in the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF), please contact Alisha Vines, Office on Youth Director, at (540) 672-5484.
