ISSI > Underage Drinking & Driving > Brandon's Story Brandon's Story

Shortly before his high school prom at Los Gatos High School, 17 year-old Brandon Silveria was involved in a near-fatal crash after drinking a couple of beers at a high school party. After enduring a coma for nearly three months and another three years of painful rehabilitation, Brandon and his father Tony tour America's high schools full-time on behalf of The Century Council.

Despite his permanent and visible speech and walking disabilities, Brandon delivers a compelling message to teens about the dangers of drinking and driving. Brandon's proactive efforts to educate teens and encourage responsible decisions continue to make an impact at schools across the country. In fact' a pin-drop can be heard in high school auditoriums when Brandon is at the podium making his presentation. Brandon reached his one-millionth student at his hometown high school, Los Gatos High, in May 2001 and received an honorary high school diploma.

We encourage you to help teens make the right choice. You can utilize the resources below to learn more or to share Brandon’s Story.
