Train the Trainers
Quality education and communication is essential is addressing the problem of reckless and distracted driving. Impact Teen Drivers strives to expand the pool of proficient facilitators through Train the Trainers— a workshop that empowers first responders, educators, health professionals, and community members to successfully carry out the Impact Teen Drivers program in their communities to help stop the number one killer of young people in America.
Train the Trainers is an engaging workshop for participants to learn about the issue of distracted and reckless driving itself, and become empowered to address it in the most effective manner. This five-hour training conveys the most recent and cogent research concerning teen driving behaviors and attitudes, driving statistics, and Graduated Driver Licensing laws, and translates all the information into actionable solutions.
Train the Trainers will provide participants with evidence-based tools to deliver high-energy presentations focused on the dangers of reckless and distracted driving. Participants will become well-versed in Impact Teen Drivers’ bedrock, “What do You Consider Lethal?” campaign, and learn how to effectively communicate the essentials of safe driving to teens, parents, and members of their communities.
Train the Trainers provides participants with examples of school and community-based programs and presentations, including parent-teen safe driving workshops and California Department of Education approved lesson plans. Participants will receive informational handouts, guides, and templates for facilitating discussion and preparing presentations about teen safe driving for their own reference and to share with other educators, first responders, health professionals, or community members.
