Teen Victim Impact Program is dedicated to reducing the number of teen car crash fatalities through education and awareness. Far too many teens are released on the roads without having adequate education, training and most of all time behind the wheel. Teen Victim Impact Program portrays the lives of teens whose lives were shortened due to teen driving related motor vehicle crashes. It is our hope that by relating how these tragedies affected family and friends teens will take a more serious attitude in their driving and the parents of teens will take educating their teen more seriously. Teen driving related car crashes are the number one cause of deaths in this country. It is our goal to bring about public awareness of this SILENT TRAGEDY occurring in this country. In doing this we believe the loss of so many teens can be dramatically reduced.
We spread this message primarily through presentations to Schools, Churches, Synagogues and Civic Organizations. It is very appropriate for assemblies prior to HOME COMING, SPRING BREAK, PROM and GRADUATION. Our presentations consists of a stirring video set to contemporary music, a discussion of specific case studies, and analysis and recommendations of the bad decisions that caused these crashes and Q&A. In a gymnasium filled with thousands of teenagers, you can hear a pin drop. Call us to see about having us speak at your school or organization. Parents are encouraged to attend presentations where possible. If you would like more information about our Drive For Life Program please contact me at Bill@tvip.org
We have also created a book called It Won't Happen To Me, that focuses on the reality of what can happen to inexperienced young drivers and how it affects family and friends. This book is moving and makes the reader think about his or her driving habits. Parents have allowed us to share the stories of their loss in hopes that other teens won't make the same decisions or choices their teen made. This book is designed to reach students of all socio-economic groups, races and religions. Any teenager in the country is able to pick up the book and find someone who has been killed in a car crash that looks like a friend or themselves.
