What better way to reach teens than with a huge multimedia event?
“This is how you have to reach out to teens now,” said Joy Sweeney, executive director of the Council for Drug Free Youth, speaking at Jefferson City High School during the National Save a Life Tour.

The multimedia event featured large screens with personal videos playing, and a five-screen, 180-degree driving simulator allowed students a chance to feel what it is like to drive drunk.
