NEO LogoWhile the focus of NEO is to keep young people drug and alcohol free, we believe that the most effective way to do this is by addressing root causes which contribute to drug and alcohol use and abuse.

Because of this we address many issues such as suicide, depression, body image, education, healthy alternatives and community responsibility.

Together, these efforts combine to provide a comprehensive, multifaceted approach aimed at building assets and resiliency ultimately reducing overall drug and alcohol use.

Foundry’s Youth Arts & Education Programming

On Friday, April 19th, the Miners Foundry was proud to support NEO’s 2nd annual Fashion Runway Show.  NEO is a local non-profit that provides positive activities for youth in our community.  This years theme was BE UNIQUE!  This one-of-a-kind fashion event for young people was part of NEO’s Love Your Body Campaign, striving to inspire young people to love themselves for who they are, no matter what shape, size or color.  The show featured local youth designers, artists, and musicians as well as featured collections from local retailers.

The event was the fourth fundraiser the Foundry has worked with NEO to support.  The event was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Ghidotti Foundation which supports the Foundry’s Youth Arts and Education programming.

Other programs supported are 7-Hills Medieval Festival, Nevada Union Art Department Show, Nevada Union Great Gatsby Night.  As a non-profit community cultural center, the Foundry strives to support the work of fellow community non-profit organizations that help create the healthy and vibrant community we live in.

If you are interested in finding out more information about, volunteering or supporting our Youth Arts & Education Programming please contact the Foundry at 530-265-5040.
