Youth Driven Logo


Youth Driven is a traffic safety and leadership program that is led by the Rhode Island Student Assistance Services (RISAS) and supported by the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) Office On Highway Safety. Youth Driven is a year-round RI high school program & it begins with an educational summer summit. Every high school that attends the summit creates an action plan for the upcoming school year focused on traffic safety.

Youth Driven aims to empower Rhode Island's youth and their adult advisors by equipping them with the motivation, knowledge, skills, and support needed to organize events and initiatives championing Traffic Safety in their communities. This includes safety campaigns addressing issues like distracted driving, impaired driving, speeding, and alcohol and drug-free prevention strategies.
