T.A.S.K. FORCE (Teaching Awareness and Safety to Kids)
The T.A.S.K. Force–which stands for Teaching Awareness and Safety to Kids–is a group of VV4W club volunteers who visit schools and perform at assemblies for young school children. We started the program in November of 2007. Most of the time these assemblies are a reward for the students who are doing well. Some of the schools we have visited are Hesperia Christian, Cottonwood, Maple, Sandia, and Challenger–to name a few. The show consists of members’ off-road vehicles lining up on display, driving up the articulation ramp, doing wheel stacks, talking with the students about being safe and responsible while off-roading and doing well in school. We also are there to show off the different types of our club’s off-road vehicles. Afterwards, the kids are able to look at the vehicles up close and ask questions.
We are not limited to elementary schools. There is no charge, as this is all volunteer. If you are a teacher, principal, or know of a function who wishes to have us visit, contact us.
For more information and discussion, visit our forum board on the matter.
Currently, we have adopted a four-mile trail, 2N17X, near Silverwood Lake. We work alongside the USFS and promote responsible use of public lands. We help maintain the trail, making repairs caused by weather and off-road use, and we pick up trash and debris left by others. If you’d like to know how to help us, contact us or visit the forums.
