FORD REWARDS OVER 150 LOCAL AT-RISK STUDENTS WITH EXCLUSIVE VISIT TO REGIONAL HEADQUARTERS AND DESIGN STUDIO, VIP AND CELEBRITY GUEST SPEAKERS, AND CHANCE TO WIN BRAND NEW CAR
WHO: The Orange County Gang Reduction and Intervention Partnership (OC GRIP) program and their partners, Ford Motor Company (Ford) and Taco Bell, will reward over 150 local elementary, middle, and high school students for their successful participation in the program with a visit to Ford’s regional headquarters in Irvine.
Students will meet professional skateboarder, reality star, and entrepreneur Ryan Sheckler, and get an exclusive tour of Ford’s design studio. Students will also hear from law enforcement officers and prosecutors, including Orange County District Attorney (OCDA) Tony Rackauckas, who will talk to students about positive life choices and the negative effects of criminal street gangs.
WHAT: To earn this incentive, the students met a challenge to have no unexcused absences, criminal activity or arrests, violence or weapons on campus, and no gang-related clothing, writing, or behavior.
As a reward for their commitment to additional OC GRIP programming, 25 students and their families in attendance will also be eligible to win an all-new Ford Transit Connect furnished by the OC Ford Dealers Advertising Fund.
This is the third year that the OC GRIP program, in partnership with Ford and their employees, have provided at-risk-students with resources and support to encourage them to make education a priority in their lives. In this year alone, over 90 Ford employees volunteered their time by visiting 12 Orange County schools to meet with students in the program.
