2023 YOUTH DRIVEN SUMMIT
Over the course of the 3 day summit, high school students from across Rhode Island learned components of traffic safety with a focus on substance use prevention strategies and safe decision making skills. Students will have the opportunity to develop their innate leadership skills to keep themselves, their schools and their communities safe and strong. School and community teams will create action plans to take back to their schools and communities to implement over the course of the school year. There are only 100 spots available, so sign up today to save your spot.
**Every school group is required to have an adult advisor who is 21 years or older attend the summit. Please contact Youth Driven Program Coordinator with any questions you may have.
