This one-day training for students and advisors will focus on the safety issues of teens and driving. Dynamic, interactive workshops will be presented on safety belt use, drinking and driving, speeding, cell phone use, and texting while driving. Additional activities will focus on team building skills and action plan development. Through this training, the students will be empowered to take a leadership role in making a difference in their schools.
Each school will develop an action plan at the workshop. This plan will address what they determine to be the number one concern among the students of their school that could lead to death and injury as a result of traffic crashes.
