2018 YOVASO Summer Leadership Retreat
We’re going on an adventure to save teen lives! Join us for the 2018 Summer Leadership Retreat “YOVASO Heroes” June 18-21 at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. This year’s retreat promises four days of exciting, motivational, and educational activities that will be prepare teens and adult advisors to lead effective peer-to-peer clubs for youth traffic safety. All teens (rising freshman through graduating seniors) who are interested in advocating for safe teen driving and traffic safety are encouraged to attend.
Students and sponsors will attend multimedia presentations, participate in hands-on activities, and enjoy a variety of speakers, workshops, and interactive sessions. Highlights and new features for 2018 include StreetSafe, a behind-the-wheel driving experience to teach young drivers how to be safer and more responsible; presentations on the emerging issue of drug impaired driving; and Mallory’s Story, a family’s journey of ongoing recovering from a crash that injured their young daughter. Social events will be held nightly, including a social at Taylor Down Under, talent show, trivia night, and schools will also have time to meet and begin action planning for the upcoming school year. Amazing Race, “Superhero” style, is also back by popular demand!
The retreat also features YOVASO’s annual Awards Banquet honoring schools, students, sponsors, SROs, and volunteers for outstanding teen safe driving initiatives during the 2017-2018 school year. The banquet is scheduled for Wednesday evening, June 20.
