Empowering Youth to See the Power of Volunteering


end distracted drivingIn our fast-paced world, it’s refreshing to see a charity, foundation and nonprofit that can change the lives of kids with a 30-minute presentation. These lives are changed in many ways — with regard to volunteerism, peer-to-peer compassion, and becoming a civic advocate.

End Distracted Driving (EndDD.org) is so much more than a campaign to stop the distracted driving epidemic in our country. When presented to our youth, it becomes an opportunity and a challenge for them to think about what they want to do with their lives and who they want to be. As presenters, we challenge them to look at not just how they drive, but also how to be a safety advocate for their own family and friends. They can in turn volunteer and teach others, and as a generation they can become part of a movement that will in many ways shape their view of the world.  

There is nothing more rewarding that spending 45 minutes at a high school empowering our young people to see the effect and power of volunteering. They’re emboldened to drive safer, advocate for others, and realize the collective passion of their classmates to be a part of a campaign that saves lives daily.
