Seas the Day at YADAPP 2018

Rising 9th through 12th grade student leaders along with an Adult Sponsor are invited to Make a Splash and Seas the Day with us at the 2018 YADAPP Conference!

The Youth Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Project (YADAPP) is a unique, year-long peer leadership opportunity fostering substance use prevention and healthy communities. During the week-long kick off conference, students attend topical workshops, hear from internationally-known motivational speakers, learn peer leadership and prevention best practices and develop a strategic plan to address alcohol or drug use among their peers.

Included in enrollment is lodging, meals and conference materials for the week of conference and year-long coaching and support from Virginia ABC.
