The National Center for Prevention and Research Solutions (NCPRS) team is grateful to live and work in a community in which our partners care about improving the lives of children and families. With 1 in 4 middle school students in Florida reporting having tried an illicit drug, it is imperative that as a community, we work together to educate our youth and encourage them to live healthy and productive lives. Since 1989, NCPRS has worked with numerous partners locally and nationally to enhance the resiliency skills that help prevent/delay the onset of illicit substance use, misuse of prescription medication, and other problem behaviors among youth that dampen their wellbeing. Recently, Florida Community Bank joined by contributing a $1,000 donation to put prevention materials in the hands of local youth.

Thanks to the $1,000 donation from Florida Community Bank, Volusia County youth will be able to participate in Stay on Track. Similar to NCPRS, Florida Community Bank believes in helping improve the lives of individuals in our local community. They also provide financial literacy education programs to families to help them secure a financial future. Jake Dolan, the AVP Branch Manager for Florida Community Bank, recently indicated, “Florida Community Bank believes in strengthening our community, and working with other organizations that share the same belief. We are glad to help Volusia County children and look forward to future partnership opportunities.”
