Training Traffic Safety Leaders
YOVASO Regional Trainers conduct free trainings, along with action planning for your school’s traffic safety club. These trainings include an overview of YOVASO’s goals for member clubs, the top causative factors in teen crashes, development of your school’s safe driving club and how to sponsor school-based educational and awareness activities. Regional trainers also work the four night retreat during the summer at James Madison University in Harrisonburg. These leaders are college-level students who work on a part-time basis to help keep YOVASO exciting and fun!
