Peer-to-peer outreach has always been the approach of Teens in the Driver Seat. This means that it was developed for teens to lead the outreach and messaging. For some teens, especially those who have been impacted by a car crash, this isn’t enough, and they want to be involved on a broader scale. For these teen leaders, we have additional opportunities spanning from creating videos to seats on our national advisory board. Below is information on all our additional teen opportunities available.
Teen Advisory Board is a national board of high school peer leaders who assist with program development, meet regularly with YTS staff, and provide program input. Students must apply
annually to be considered for the TAB.
Social Media Influencer is a great way to build your social media skills and your following! TDS is looking for teen social media influencers to utilize their social media presence to share traffic safety messages with their audience and TDS’s social media audience. Teens get to choose how much they want to be involved.
Teen of the Month is a monthly recognition given to teens who are actively engaged in the program within their school and community. Teens can nominate themselves!
