Y2C—Youth 2 Community Music and Arts
For the past several years, CB Cares has coordinated the Youth 2 Community Arts Series (Y2C), an initiative that provides CB youth with opportunities to showcase their dedication and devotion to the arts. Teens showcase their talents (dramatic, artistic, performance, musical, culinary) to audiences of all ages, not just their peers. Thus the name Y2C, Youth to Community.
Through engaging and empowering our youth in this manner, our young people feel a greater sense of connection and community involvement. Performance venues include: First Friday Doylestown, The Central Bucks Family YMCA, Chubby’s Dairy Barn in Plumsteadville, various township parks, The James A. Michener Art Museum, and numerous other locations. Y2C is made possible, in part, through the 5-County Arts Fund, a Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts program of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. This program is rich in community partnerships; we are always looking for new sponsors and venues for these talented youth.
For more information on how your business can become involved, contact CB Cares’ office at 215-489-9120.

Safe Teen Driving
The goal of CB Cares' Safe Teen Driving initiative is to provide our parents and teens with the resources to become safer teen drivers. Driving fatalities continue to be the number one cause of death for teens between the ages of 16 and 19. To help reduce this tragic number of fatalities, we have approached this problem in several different ways: an evening community presentation featuring author and speaker, Timothy Smith, who spoke on the topic "Crashproof Your Kids", the creation of our Parent/Teen Safe Driving Contract in partnership with the Fred Beans Family of Dealerships, and two roundtable discussions which included representatives from law enforcement, driving industry experts, elected officials, and teens. We continue to plan for future collaborative community discussions on this crucial topic.
