Peer-to-Peer Traffic Safety Campaign Program
Want to save a friend's life?
MDT is partnering with the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) to promote Teen Traffic Safety. FCCLA's Families Acting for Community Traffic Safety (FACTS) program is a national peer education program through which students strive to save lives by educating youth and their community about traffic safety.
MDT is offering grants (up to $1,000.00) to student(s) who decide to promote teen traffic safety in their schools. Topics that can be included are increase seat belt use; reduce speeding; reduce distracted driving; and reduce other behaviors by teen drivers that lead to injuries and fatalities, or a combination of any of these safety issues.
Applicants will determine the methods of educating their peers on traffic safety issues. This may include social media campaigns, in-school contests (i.e., video messaging contest, poster contest), flyers, etc. School groups will be given guidance on how to implement a successful traffic safety peer-to-peer educational program.
This grant program is managed on an expenditure reimbursement basis.
If you are not requesting funding but are creating a traffic safety campaign, MDT would like to hear from you. Please complete the Teen Activity Report and share your project with us so we can share it on our website.
