Teen Peer-to-Peer Traffic Education
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. To apply for grant funding for this program, please complete the Teen Grant Application.
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..
