The 2016 FNL Youth Traffic Safety Summit is almost here!
Participating in the FNL Youth Summit is an amazing opportunity to connect with new and young drivers, youth leaders, and healthy lifestyle and traffic safety advocates from throughout California.
The Summit is an annual two day gathering of over 700 high school aged students who are excited and eager to make positive change in their local communities. On the first day of the Summit, participants attend 3 different workshop sessions choosing from over 30 different topics in an effort to gain as much knowledge about projects, campaigns and the most current information on topics that are important to them. Topics range from alcohol, tobacco and other drugs to distracted driving to skill building to campaign how-tos like TRACE, Every Fifteen Minutes & Beyond and much more! Day two is a day of planning - participants spend time in their home groups creating a plan of action for the upcoming school year based on what they learned the previous day. They also have an opportunity to network with agencies and organizations from throughout the state that could be potential partners in their work moving forward. Providing opportunities for our State’s young and future leaders to connect with the traffic safety and public health professionals that are paving the way is so important! The Summit could also be a great venue for moving forward work on various challenge areas of the Strategic Highway Safety Plan - there was a suggestion at one point to have either an SHSP workshop or time in a general session to educate this demographic about the SHSP (just throwing that out there).
That said, I’d like to invite you to attend, present a workshop, and/or be an exhibitor at the Summit on September 10 & 11, 2016 in Anaheim, CA!
If you’re interested in presenting a workshop, please complete an application to present by following this link: https://cfnlp.wufoo.com/forms/q1kmsfrb0c6ec0x/ - you can also let us know if you’d like to have an exhibit table on the application.
If you’re interested in attending and having and exhibit table only, please complete this form: https://cfnlp.wufoo.com/forms/r2x93bo06m5ecr/
Registration to attend the conference and hotel reservations will open next week, I will send a follow-up e-mail with that information or visit our website for access to that - www.fridaynightlive.org
The Summit would not be possible without the continued support of the CA Office of Traffic Safety, the Allstate Foundation, AT&T, the National Road Safety Foundation, our local Friday Night Live chapters and of course the young people who strive to make this world a better place.
If you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out to me. Thank you for your time and consideration!
