2023 Winter/Spring Session
Begins Monday, January 23rd!
The New Bern Noble Knights Chess Club is returning January 23, 2023 for a new winter/spring session. This is a program to teach our youth how to play chess. This 11-week program is held on Mondays from 5:30pm-7pm at West New Bern Recreation Center (1225 Pinetree Drive).
Project Positive Focus
Project Positive Focus (PPF) was implemented in May 2005, when a group of community leaders, parents, citizens and members of the department met regarding “gang-related activities.” Officers walked away from that meeting with the thought of providing a structured program for teens ages 13-18. Teens meet once a month year round and participate in numerous prevention and educational programs including:
ECU Football Games, ECU Basketball, Bowling, trips to Kings Dominion, Adopt-A-Highway projects, Leadership Development courses, SAT Prep/Study Skills classes, College Tours, Budgeting lessons, Bingo Night, Computer Skills (Basics) classes, Interview Skills teaching, Peer Pressure & Bullying Programs, Social Needs assessment, a Team Building Obstacle Course and social outings are just some of the programs and events included in Project Positive Focus.
You can register by visiting the New Bern Police Department between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. or you can complete the Project Positive Focus Registration Form and return it to the New Bern Police Department at 601 George St., New Bern, NC 28560. Registration forms are accepted year round. If you have questions, please contact the New Bern Police Department at (252)672-4100.
