Mission Statement

Our primary mission is youth development in the States of Oregon and Washington. We do that in three ways:

1. Interactive traffic safety safety presentations at high schools.

2. Drug and alcohol presentations at high schools.

3. We have a registered therapy dog named Stella. Stella visits children at elementary and middle schools to facilitate reading programs. Her participation is a boost to their self-confidence and socialization, which improves their reading ability. Stella also goes to hospice and hospitals to cheer up patients, visitors and staff.

We reached 12,000 people this year.


Motorcycle Safety

We are passionate about motorcycle safety.
If you drive a car, watch out for motorcycles. They can be hard to see. In a collision between a car and a motorcycle, the car driver is usually at-fault.

If you ride a motorcycle, please wear a DOT-compliant helmet and full protective gear.

There are four components to a DOT-compliant motorcycle helmet:

  1. DOT sticker.
  2. An inch of hard polystyrene foam padding.
  3. A secure fastener, usually metal D-rings.
  4. A manufacturer’s label (DOT certified, date and size).

We support the work of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.
