What is the Y.E.S.S. Program
The Y.E.S.S. Program initiated by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, and runs in partnership with the Douglas County School District, Castle Rock Police Department and Parker Police Department. The program is designed to educate youth in classroom instruction by Sheriff’s Deputies and Police Officers regarding internet safety, substance abuse prevention, teen relationships, suicide prevention, and much more! Today’s youth face so many more challenges and without this instruction they are left to making choices without the information required to make right ones!
The Y.E.S.S. program was initiated at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, but is not fully funded by tax dollars. The Program has already received national recognition through an award of Excellence for the work and results being accomplished. The Rotary Club of Castle Pines though their fundraising efforts and application for grants through the Rotary District has provided support for this important work. However, their support has barely made a small contribution compared to the need and therefore they have initiated an annual BBQ BREWS and BANJOS family event. Because of the Rotary’s focus is for the youth of our community, they felt a family friendly event was appropriate to support.
If you cannot attend, please feel free to make a tax deductible contribution to the effort at the web address noted above. Additionally please view the auction items listed at the site and make a bid for items of your choice!
We hope to see you at the event for a fun family afternoon!!

We’re moving to the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado.This three-day conference will feature speakers from across the continent on a range of topics designed to empower life safety professionals and similarly-minded emergency responders and private industry leaders to become better risk reduction resources in our fields. Although the conference is several months away, preparations are underway. The annual call for speakers is one step toward producing another vibrant and educational conference.Our conference is more than fire safety and fire prevention (although those topics remain important). We’re committed to injury and illness prevention, all-hazards community risk reduction, community resiliency, instructional methodology and program improvement.

We offer courses in three formats: 20-minute sprint sessions, 90-minute breakout sessions and 3-hour workshops.Use this link to submit your proposal: http://tinyurl.com/oqucry9Proposals are due at the close of business Sept. 9.Please share this Call for Speakers with any of your colleagues who also share a commitment to community risk reduction and empowering others to have such an important impact on their communities.Thanks for considering this request.
