Message to Youth

Road safety and traffic crashes are two major issues that have arise during the past decade. According to statistics 1.2 millions persons worldwide loose their lives because of car accidents. The shocking evidence is yet to come. The major victims are we, youth! Why shall we let things go that way! Why shall we stand still with crossed hands watching our friends, parents and siblings die on daily basis? Why shall we accept ourselves to be passive members in the society; whereby, we as youth nowadays can play a vital and fundamental role in our community? We shall believe in ourselves and our capabilities people, and believe as well that someday we can change the world making earth a safer place to live on. It isn’t an impossible mission.

The key term element for accomplishing the mission successfully is raising road safety together with traffic awareness. YASA is one of strongest and most effective NGOs in the Middle East that deals with those issues. The organization was launched by youth who refused to be considered passive members and took the initiative of spreading road safety. Despite the community service, voluntary, and relationship experience that one can gain being a YASA member, the most important benefit is raising one’s own basic knowledge regarding road safety in early stages, and sharing this knowledge and spreading it in the whole society in later ones. Think about how many lives a YASA member can save through spreading traffic awareness. Think about altering people’s behaviours positively and making them more aware of road safety.

Joining us at YASA means you are playing a significant role in breaking the destructive relationship between youth and other harmful issues like youth and speed, and youth and alcohol. On the contrary you would be building a tight relationship among youth themselves on one hand to unite and work for a better future, and on the other hand build a strong positive relationship between youth and the seatbelt or the helmet for example. Friends, do not hesitate to support YASA’s initiatives and missions and do community service work and even do not think twice about joining YASA. If we have a chance to save lives, spread road awareness and increase road safety why don’t we make a full use of this chance. Remember, the rate of fatal car crashes is rising worldwide…

However, safety isn’t strictly related to road safety. Because we are young, we do all practice various types of sports and recreation activities. Unfortunately, our low awareness regarding certain sports leads to us suffer from severe injuries that could have been prevented. Lebanese Association for Sport Injuries Prevention (LASIP, www.lasip.net), a sister organization of YASA, is specialized in preventing sports injuries that mainly target youth.

Do something! Join YASA and LASIP be the change.
