Our Programs

GPSi60
Guiding Personal Success

IMPACT60 aspires to educate the community on the problems we are facing and to inspire service and support and a foundation of hope in the midst of the opioid crisis. Together with the support of our team, associates and community volunteers, GPSi60 aims to ultimately engage 100s of teens in Union County. Through our program, we are able to enhance teen driver skills and decision-making while also helping students gain an understanding of themselves as unique, special, one-of-a-kind individuals who can lead happy and drug-resistant lives. Participants will learn empowering life skills which will help them become well-rounded adults and positive contributors to our community.  We will unlock their potential and steer them in directions they may have never thought were possible!

GPSi60 TEEN SURVEY

 

Teen Driving

Who is most at risk?

The risk of motor vehicle crashes is higher among 16 to 19-year-olds than any other age group. In fact, per mile driven, teen drivers aged 16 to 19 are nearly 3 times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be involved in a fatal crash. Those teen drivers at an especially high risk for motor vehicle crashes are:

  • Males: In 2014, the motor vehicle death rate for male drivers and passengers ages 16 to 19 was two times that of their female counterparts.
  • Teens driving with teen passengers: The presence of teen passengers increases the crash risk of unsupervised teen drivers. This risk increases with the number of teen passengers.
  • Newly licensed teens: Crash risk is particularly high during the first months of licensure. The crash rate per mile driven is 3 times higher for 16 to 17-year-olds as compared to 18 to 19-year-olds.
