Fontana, CA (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
On Wednesday, June 04, 2014, Vista Metals Corp. President, Andrew Primack, presented a generous donation to the Fontana Leadership Intervention Program (FLIP). Leslie Boozer, Superintendent of Fontana Unified School District, and Beth Davidson, FLIP Intervention Secretary, accepted the donation on behalf of FLIP. “We have always identified education as a valuable resource in the community,” expressed Andy. “We have established a great partnership with FLIP. Vista is proud to support their continued contributions to the community.”
The Fontana Leadership Intervention Program (FLIP) is founded upon a partnership between the Fontana School Police, City of Fontana, Fontana Police Department, and Fontana Unified School District. The 16 (sixteen) week program offers “at-risk” teenagers an opportunity to experience a unique educational environment which will positively impact the rest of their lives.
FLIP classes focus on topics including:
- Violence prevention
- Drug and alcohol resistance
- Leadership skill development
In addition, participants will attend daily morning meetings with the school resource officer assigned to their respective schools. Parents of selected students must attend an eight-hour orientation session.
Upon successful completion of the FLIP program, students participate in a formal graduation ceremony which includes a keynote address by a recognized community leader. High school students who successfully complete the program will also earn 5 elective credits toward graduation and become part of an on-going partnership to help ensure their future success.
