Smart Choices for our Youth

Conversations with young people about smart & safe life choices can sometimes feel tricky. We want everyone in our community to have the tools, support & inspiration they need to make these conversations easier and more effective.

As you know, our City Commission recently declared October Teen Traffic Safety Month in Oregon City and, along with the Angel5 campaign, the community has rallied around the families and friends of the young people lost to traffic incidents this year. 

To continue encouraging our youth to make smart and safe choices, we hope you will join us for an inspiring evening of information, support, and a little bit of magic. The evening will feature special guests and nationally renowned speakers Kevin Brooks and Robert Hackenson. 

Yes! This event will be engaging and interesting to everyone: parents, mentors, and youth. We will be premiering the Above the Influence/100 Reasons video from OCHS PioFest, and exploring other media tools for parents and youth alike.

We hope you plan to attend on Tuesday October 20th from 6-8pm at Oregon City High School.  You can follow this link for details and to RSVP.
