The Journey is a demonstration of what happens during a drunk driving accident. The Journey, by far, has the most profound impact on it’s audience of any public awareness campaign that JCAS does. Four teenagers are in a motor vehicle accident with alcohol involved. A mock accident is held each spring in the week prior to prom for audiences of local high school students. All of the high school students are involved in the assembly, which is performed on a rotating basis in the area schools. Each school hosts the Journey Unknown once every other year. The Journey Unknown is coordinated by JCAS Field Supervisor Bob Libby.
