SteerSmart is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to reducing the number one cause of teen deaths - Car Crashes - through education and awareness. The educational initiatives help teens become safer, more responsible drivers. The organization also strives to make parents aware of the importance of proper training and monitoring of their teens.
The SteerSmart program is free and teaches teens and new drivers about the risks of the road, focusing on decisions and consequences. Students learn about the impact of their decisions, seeing firsthand accounts of fatal and near fatal accidents. The program dissects the anatomy of real and specific crashes which result in fatalities or severely injured youth, and depicts the potential cost of speeding, texting, intersections, hydoplaning, alcohol and drugs, failure to use a seat belt, and more.
SteerSmart asks for just one hour to help save young lives. Our program has been customized to fit neatly within the typical regular daily academic schedule. It can be easily modified to be as short as 60 minutes or extended to over 90 minutes. The program has been delivered in all types of venues to all kinds of audiences. The common thread is that it has been hailed as memorable, instructive and vital to the safety of drivers by audiences all over the country.
