Boomerang Youth Recognition Award
“What goes around, comes around.”

This youth recognition award was created to recognize students in the Central Bucks School District for living by one of the 40 Assets, designated monthly. The 40 Developmental Assets are positive experiences, behaviors, and personal qualities that all youth need to possess, in order to be responsible, caring, and strong in the face of peer pressures and other life challenges. Each year, over 1,000 elementary, middle, and high school students are nominated and recognized for their assets.

Prom Partners


Very soon prom season will be in full swing, and CB Cares is gearing up for their Prom Partners program, an initiative to bring businesses together to get the message to our youth that we care about the choices they make during this time of year. Prom Partners is a collaboration between CB Cares, the Central Bucks Drug Free Community Project, and local businesses in the community who experience increased business during the prom season. Studies show that during weekends around prom time, there is an increase of traffic crash fatalities among 15-20 year olds that are alcohol-related, and of these fatalities, 72 percent       involve a 16-20 year old driver with alcohol in his/her system. This statistic alone was enough to prompt the importance of the message promoted in the Prom Partner’s  program.

Now in its fourth year, Ventresca’s Formal Wear has maintained their partnership with CB Cares to promote this message. Ventresca’s distributes the Prom Partner message via brightly colored flyers which hang from every tuxedo rental that goes out the door. All three Central Bucks high schools, New Hope-Solebury, Archbishop Wood and the other surrounding school districts will patronize Ventresca’s between now and the end of May. The message is smart and simple, “Look Good, Choose Well, Get Home Safely”. CB Cares, Ventresca’s, and the community want everyone to enjoy themselves and look their best and not contribute to the staggering statistics during prom season.
