Sacramento, CA, December 23, 2017 — Funding from Sate Farm has made it possible for Safety Center to return to Oakridge High School for its fourth year presenting to the entire 10th grade the lifesaving information of the Alive at 25 program. With continued funding the Safety Center has established its presence at Oakridge, presenting in the fall and returning in the spring to ensure no student is left out.
Changing behavior is needed when it comes to distracted driving, however the Alive at 25 program tackles much more than just distracted driving. Alive at 25 changes attitudes that cause risky driving behavior and teens walk away with strategies for making safe driving choices as a driver and as a passenger. At Oakridge, the majority of students participating have not yet begun to drive allowing them to develop defensive driving skills before they embark on their driving career.
Since 2014, State Farm has supported the Safety Center in delivering 60 presentations to 1,841 students in Oakridge High’s Health classes. Kim Hassian the coordinating Health Teacher continues to support the partnership that has developed ensuring the safety of her students. During the fall of 2017, 268 students out of 278 said that after participating in the Alive at 25 presentation’s they would speak up when in a dangerous situation in vehicles. Overall since 2013, State Farm has allowed the Safety Center to deliver 167 Alive at 25 classes to 4,708 students empowering them to make safe driving commitments for their future.
