The foundation has put up posters and signs at various locations around the community such as the schools and train stations and have recently partnered with the police department in West Orange and South Orange to determine the high-traffic areas that require more attention.

Along with traffic safety awareness, the foundation also instituted a music program for kids interested in learning and improving their musical skills by taking lessons. The program has grown from 20 participants in 2012 to 53 current participants from the Middle and High schools in West Orange.

The participants performed at Liberty Middle School for a Musical Celebration and Tribute to Nikhil as well as at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.

"I thought that they were great at the celebration, but I thought they were just astounding at the NJPAC," Badlani said.

Those looking for more information on the foundation can visit nikhilbadlanifoundation.org.

The final presentation during the conference agenda was given by West Orange High School Administrators Nancy Mullin, Director of Career and Technical Education and Library Science, and Demond Cowins, Business Education teacher and Cooperative Education Coordinator.

"We have a co-op program where the students take two or three courses specifically in that program in order to develop those skills so that they can become paid interns," Cowins said.

The purpose of the program is to contribute to the development of personal and professional maturity of the students who are accepted.

The program is currently looking for local businesses to provide cooperative education opportunities to students in areas such as accounting, marketing, child development, law, culinary arts, photography, journalism and many more.

Anyone interested in joining the cause can contact Cowins at DCowins@woboe.org or NMullin@woboe.org.
