Teens in the program attend various classes, as directed by the judge.  Classes help teens learn from their mistakes and make positive choices in the future.

  • Reckless Driving – Trauma Nurses from Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital use a PowerPoint presentation to show the horrific consequences of reckless driving, and discuss why teens have a higher risk of being involved, injured, and killed in a motor vehicle collision. Handling high-risk situations, the consequences of risky driving, and how teens can avoid becoming involved in a motor vehicle collision are also discussed during the presentation. 
  • Santa Clarita Youth Grove* – Teens listen to iPods that contain the stories of local youth who were killed in traffic accidents, to help the teens reflect upon the unfortunate consequences of reckless driving, and to reinforce the importance of safe, sober driving.

  • Teen Choices - The Teen Choices class teaches teens to accept responsibility for their actions. They learn they are accountable for their choices, and the class gives them the tools which enable them to make positive life choices for the future.
  • Traffic School – The Traffic School class covers traffic safety and safe driving practices. Teens are given a quiz at the end of the class to demonstrate comprehension of material.

*The Santa Clarita Youth Grove is a grassroots effort supported by the City of Santa Clarita and the Blue Ribbon Task Force.  It is dedicated to Santa Clarita youth (24 years old and younger) who have died in traffic-related incidents, and provides a safe, centralized location for young people and community members to remember these youth, and to reflect upon the unfortunate consequences of drinking and driving and of reckless driving. The Youth Grove is located at Central Park, 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road, Santa Clarita. (View the PDF Map
