DDC Spotlight

Since South Carolina's Alive at 25 programs kicked off in 2007, that state's death toll among drivers 15-24 has dropped 47%
The most influential feedback originates from our Alive at 25 students stating 98% would change their driving behavior after taking the course. Alive at 25 educate our young adults in the community empowering them to make good driving decisions and create a positive connection between law enforcement and the students.

The Safety Council of Greater St. Louis aims to replicate this success in the Greater St. Louis area by working in conjunction with area high schools and corporations to bring this nationally recognized program to our young adults.
