UPS Road Code is back for another year following two years of successful delivery in Somerset! Last year young people created a mini video series highlighted local road safety concerns and dangers, you can check them out on our YouTube channel here. Watch our behind the scenes film here.
This programme helps keep young people safe in and around cars and forms part of the UK arm of the UPS Foundation’s global innovative programme, funded and supported by UK Youth.
In The Mix Project provides road hazard awareness programme for 13-19 year old’s with Somerset Schools, Colleges and youth groups. The programme provides them with the skills and confidence to speak up in potentially dangerous driving situations.
The innovative programme uses virtual reality technology and driving simulators in workshops co-delivered by our youth workers and UPS driver volunteers. As well as providing ‘behind the wheel’ experience, UPS Road Code focusses on passenger safety to make young people aware of how to keep themselves and others safe in and around cars.
We previously ran this programme last year with tremendous success and huge outcomes for the groups involved. Interested in getting involved? Get in touch now!
