Car crashes remain the number one cause of death for adolescents. But an important program called Project Ignition is bringing together students, teachers and communities to create change. And they’re saving lives.
You can be part of this successful program by helping a public high school apply for a $2,000 Project Ignition grant to address teen driver safety through service-learning.
What Do Project Ignition Teams Do?
- They create impactful awareness and engagement campaigns.
- They host events and demonstrations.
- They form community-wide partnerships, work on local and state policy, produce public service announcements and more.
How Does Project Ignition Work?
- Twenty-five schools are chosen to receive $2,000 grants to help implement their campaigns from January to April 2013.
- Ten will receive an additional $5,000 to help them participate in a significant national conference or event.
- These ten could receive an additional $2,500 for their campaigns during the 2013-2014 school year.
