PG Driving For Life Donates to P.A.R.T.Y. Program!

Since 1997, the P.A.R.T.Y. (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) Program has been working in Prince George to educate high school students about risky behaviors and their possible life altering consequences behind the wheel. In the last 5 years, an average of 100 students participated in the P.A.R.T.Y. program, including students from Prince George, Vanderhoof, Fort St. James, Fraser Lake, Burns Lake, Mackenzie, McBride and Valemount. Presented at the University Hospital of Northern BC, the program runs through the school year, and is available to schools as well as alternative programs such as homeschooling and youth custody programs. Each Thursday, a minimum of 10 volunteers come to the Hospital to present the program consisting of RCMP members, doctors, nurses, paramedics, teachers, injury survivors and members of the public.

Having recognized the need for this program through 152 graduated driving students since 2015, Chris Schulz through the PG Driving For Life Academy has been donating to the Spirit of the North and specifically to the P.A.R.T.Y. program since then. The amount donated to that program since 2015 is a huge $3,040.00! We are incredibly grateful to Chris Schulz and PG Driving For Life for continuing to support this wonderful and impactful program.  Thank you for your kindness and generosity!!
