BeBOLD NEWS:

As we wrap up the 2018/2019 school year, BeBOLD would like to recap some of the efforts we coordinated in order to continue our mission to educate our kids and parents with hopes that not ONE Bedford child or parent will suffer from the effects of drugs and alcohol abuse.
We kicked off the school year with October’s Red Ribbon Week - “Bedford Goes Red for Red Ribbon Week” and partnered with local businesses, the Bedford School District and community members to build awareness and bring Bedford together in creating awareness and prevention.

In addition to Red Ribbon Week:
We held our Speakers Series Events at the Bedford Library every month, which focused on such topics as:
  • Vaping
  • Marijuana Legalization Issues
  • Social Liability/Hosting Parties with Alcohol
  • Building Resilience In Your Teen
  • The Youth Risk Behavior Survey Results & What They Mean for Bedford
  • It Can Happen To Any Family - Two Brothers & Police Officers Share Their Journey
  • One Of Our Own - Jenna Collins - Bedford HS Student & Her Path To Recovery
We helped at risk students at our various schools by providing scholarships & access to FREE after school activities;

We partnered with the PTG for "Stand By Me" and the Lynn Lyons presentation on “The Gift of Failure”;
We spearheaded our first annual BeBOLD scholarship program (In Memory of Jim Scanlon);
We participated in numerous events including Olde Towne Day, Voting Day, Witch Way to the 5K, Friends of Aine Try-athlon and many more.

We would like to thank the many businesses and community partners that help support BeBOLD over this school year!
