YOVASO Summer Leadership Retreat

YOVASO is excited to announce the 2022 YOVASO Summer Leadership Retreat dates and theme! YOVASO Safari: Leading the Pack for Safe Teen Driving will kick off Thursday, July 14 and continue through Sunday, July 17 at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA! We’ve moved from our regular week earlier in the summer to accommodate the many school districts that won’t be releasing until late June.

Goals for the Summer Leadership Retreat:

• Educate young drivers and passengers about their risk factors in a motor vehicle and how to reduce those risks through a variety of interactive training sessions, motivational speakers, and educational programs.

• Prepare students and their adult advisors to lead peer-to-peer safe driving and traffic safety programs in their schools and communities.

• Help build positive relationships between law enforcement and youth while working together to prevent young driver-related crashes, injuries, and fatalities.
