Project Ignition addresses teen-driver safety issues and empowers youth to lead campaigns that make measurable differences in their schools, their communities, and beyond. It is founded on a service-learning strategy that embeds the topic of teen-driver safety more deeply within a school/afterschool programs and makes connections to academic goals.
Changing Teen Driver Behavior
Driven by research and more than ten years of experience, Project Ignition has engaged teens across the country to create change. The impact is profound. The experiences are emotional. The lessons are unforgettable. Car crashes remain the number one cause of death for adolescents. Project Ignition students address this fact by working in teams, creating budgets and timelines, and reaching out to engage schools and Afterschool programs with community partners. They bring people together — and they’re saving lives.
The National Youth Leadership Council, in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, is launching a multi-year program dedicated to working with young people around the country to identify best practices to increase seatbelt usage in their community.
• A team of youth and adults committed to work in partnership to make change in their school and community
