National Foundation for Teen Safe Driving

Founded in 2011, National Foundation for Teen Safe Driving is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization dedicated to reducing the number of deaths and injuries resulting from automobile crashes by promoting safe driving and passenger safety, through leadership, education and awareness.

More teens die in automobile crashes than any other cause of death in the United States. Countless others are injured. This is a widespread problem that requires a combination of national and local actions. The National Foundation for Teen Safe Driving collaborates with safety organizations nationwide and then leverages these resources to build community based safety alliances with businesses, government, law enforcement, schools, parents and teens.

In 2015, the ground breaking and award winning work of the Foundation is expanding to a nationwide stage. We are building upon our excellent track record, one that includes receipt of the Governors Highway Safety Association Peter K. O'Rourke Special Achievement Award for notable achieve­ ments in highway safety, the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey Innovative Award and the Students Against Destructive Decisions' (SADD) Outstanding Contribution Award. Through our con­ tinued involvement with organizations such as SADD, the National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS) and the National Safety Council Teen Driving Coalitions, we are uniquely positioned to advance national best practices on the local level. NFTSD we will continue to connect businesses to their individual community needs and build the alliances necessary to create a culture of safety. Working together we can prevent these teen tragedies.
