The Brent Shapiro Foundation is proud to partner with Variety Boys & Girls Club to offer Brent’s Club.

Brent’s Club will be a sober club that will be offered to young adults who are in middle school. The club will provide incentives for participants to abstain from the use of drugs and alcohol. Members of the club will voluntarily participate in a saliva drug test once a week. Participants who test positive will receive private, discreet counseling. Those who stay sober will be rewarded. Some of the proposed incentives include educational technological devices (i.e. iPads, laptop computers, etc.), tutoring, and special events.

Our long-term goal with this program is to be able to have the program start in middle school and continue through high school. The ultimate goal is to reward the students who complete the program (middle school through high school) with college scholarships.
