Hello Community Partners!
We would love to collaborate with you from October 15-21, 2023 for National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) with our “Speak Up 4 Safety” social media campaign. This grassroots movement has brought millions of teens, parents, schools, law enforcement, advocates, and policymakers from across the country together to tackle the number one cause of death for teens in the U.S. – car crashes. The theme of the campaign is “when you see something, #SaySomething.”
What do you have planned to recognize NTDSW?
Our dynamic campaign is designed to feature you and your brand as part of the solution. Here are four easy steps you can take to collaborate with us:
