Our
Mission

Teenager in Car
Instructor in Classroom

Car crashes have been the leading cause of death for American teens for generations. The devastating impact of these events continues to affect families and communities across the country. Our organization is committed to reversing this pervasive yet 100% preventable crisis.

Impact Teen Drivers is dedicated to empowering teens to drive and ride safely by providing them dynamic educational tools, programs and safe driving strategies.

Together we can change the culture of driving to one that is distraction-free, saving lives not only in this generation of drivers and passengers, but also in all future generations.
