The 2young2die campaign does not presume all young people want to, or will, drive. It does not teach driving skills. Instead, it helps young people consider the carnage and global warming caused by driving, their options as drivers, passengers or non-drivers, and encourages them to campaign to end dangerous, unnecessary driving.
An important starting point is getting young people together in workshops that are led by volunteer ambassadors. This gives young people the opportunity to view hard-hitting online resources and have group discussions to explore the issues among themselves, including solutions, and start to plan their own campaigns for their own communities.
You can become one of our network of volunteer ambassadors, delivering such workshops, by attending the low cost, one-day 2young2die course. No experience is necessary to attend the course, although you do need a passion for the cause, and the confidence to go on and lead inclusive and inspiring workshops with young people that stimulate campaigning. The course is ideal for:
- Teachers wishing to use the campaign in lessons and to attend as part of their CPD
- Emergency service or health workers who can helpfully talk about their experiences attending road crashes or caring for road crash victims and who have a health promotion or safety promotion role
- Professionals promoting road safety, such as local authority workers or qualified driving instructors
- Youth workers and professionals working with young people such as in the army or football clubs, and in youth offender institutions
- Road crash victims wanting to volunteer for the project by telling their story in schools or colleges
- Young people and community ambassadors of any age who want to stop dangerous and unnecessary driving in their town or region
As well as the one-day course, you will get a comprehensive guide to leading your workshops, access to all the resources on this site, and a free resource pack to help you engage young people in your workshops, when you complete our online form to tell us you have a workshop set up. You also get a free year's subscription to Brake's Road Safety Forum, giving you updates on road safety research from around the globe through our acclaimed Target Zero ebulletin and a website.
