MADD Canada is committed to working with today’s youth to help make our roads safer. We want to engage and work with all those across Canada– particularly elementary, high school and university students, as well as their families, teachers and mentors – who want to do their part to put a stop to alcohol and drug-related crashes.
Today, MADD Canada’s Youth Program reaches more than 1,000,000 students in Grades 7 to 12 through our powerful School Assembly Program presentations. In addition, we have recruited a growing number of volunteers who are focused on raising awareness on college and university campuses from coast to coast.
MADD Canada also uses the Internet, radio and TV ads, posters, national contests and bursaries to reach out to every age group.
To assist parents and teachers, MADD Canada has developed education programs, victim/survivor support services and other resources, such as links and statistics for youth of all ages.
We have also developed a Contract for Life (PDF) as a reality check between friends and family members. Help your friends and family stay alive by encouraging them to sign the Contract for Life and don’t let them drink and drive!
If you’re a parent, we’ve thought of you too. Click here for the facts on teens and impaired driving from MADD Canada. MADD USA also has the Power of Parents program.
