Program Summary:

Austin BBYO came together to remember a deceased past member who lost her life in a driving accident and learn about driving safety for experts.

Full Description:

This program was opened up to all Jewish youth groups in the central Texas area and unaffiliated teens and their families as well.
Austin BBYO came together at the JCC with their families to share a potluck dinner in memory of our past deceased member, Lauren Hoffman. Lauren Hoffman lost her life in a car accident due to bad weather, and since then Austin BBYO has made it a point to educate the community about safety precautions while driving for everyone from teenagers to adults. At the potluck, a presentation was made by the presidents of each chapter about who Lauren Hoffman was and how roads have been altered because of accidents like hers. Two Austin BBYO alumni gave a speech about Lauren, and expressed how they thought car safety could be improved. This year after the potluck, families joined together to experience a presentation by Steer Smart, an organization set on educating the teen community about driving safely.
The presentation included videos, power points, stories of lost family members due to car accidents, and much more. The remembrance program was an eye opener to teens across the community.
