  • 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. (1.5 hour class)

*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)
