TRACTION  is a 2.5 day youth traffic safety leadership training program designed to empower youth to take an active role in promoting safe driving habits.  TRACTION  provides teens the motivation, information, skills and support necessary to develop a plan of action that addresses unsafe driving behaviors in their schools and communities. Schools may send a group of up to 12 students (and two advisors) that will work together to develop and implement an action plan for their local community in the year following the  TRACTION  summer conference.
