Car crashes are the number one killer of teens, and a teen’s first year on the road is the most dangerous. As part of State Farm’s firm commitment to preventing teen driving tragedies, the company is launching a new approach to keep teens safe called Celebrate My Drive. Check out the campaign Facebook page, which is “by teens, for teens” and focuses on conversations about driver safety.
America’s Promise Alliance will host a series of Business-Education Collaborative Summits, bringing together local and national business, education, nonprofit and philanthropic leaders to learn about the latest data on the economic impact of the high school dropout crisis and how they can work together more effectively to improve schools and communities.
The first summit will be held in Charlotte, NC on June 11-12 with three others in Boston, MA on September 13-14; Denver, CO on December 3-4 and Los Angeles, CA in January 2013. They are sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, State Farm® and Target.
