Our mission is to establish and assist teen-managed advocacy programs in high
schools throughout the Mid-South that focuses on traffic safety education, unsafe
driving practices and emphasizes on preventive ways to decrease crashes, injuries,
and fatalities amongst teen drivers.
Through C.L.I.F. C.A.R.E.S., students work together, in C.A.R.E.S. Club, or other
school-based clubs/organizations, in a peer-to-peer learning environment, in order
to advocate for road education and safety amongst each other. Club members
develop different ideas, strategies, and projects that address specific issues for
young drivers in their schools and communities. Students will undergo key
leadership training to better equip them to become life-long traffic safety advocates
and future successors in the Mid-South workforce.
C.A.R.E.S. Club connects students from all walks of life to local transportation and community professionals to provide training programs to educate student members about safe road practices and how to advocate for safer roadways.
C.A.R.E.S. Club provides an encouraging environment for student members to communicate openly about the issues surrounding teen driving, and actively engage in projects that address those concerns.
C.A.R.E.S. Club student members will invoke positive change in their schools, their communities, and the roadways.
