YADAPP is going virtual!

In light of the continuing response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on Virginia K-12 schools, Virginia ABC has developed a plan to implement YADAPP for the 2020–2021 school year while taking into account public health concerns.  Enrollment for YADAPP is now open and closes on September 25th!

While it was not possible to meet in person for the kick-off conference and build the camaraderie and inspiration YADAPP is known for, this virtually-based updated program will work towards the same mission of developing high school peer leadership that fosters prevention of substance use at the state and local levels. During the 2020–2021 school year virtual training and collaboration, including guidance from YADAPP Youth Staff, will be available for registered Teams as they develop their STAN Plans.

You can find a description of the updated virtually-based program to help prepare for registration and participation at www.yadapp.com.

As usual, Teams are comprised of 1 Adult Sponsor and 4 student Participants (9th–12th graders). The Adult Sponsor is responsible for registration of the entire Team, keeping Participants on track in STAN Plan development and should be involved in the implementation of the STAN Plan.
