The YOU CHOOSE Program
YOU CHOOSE participants are engaged by powerfully relatable, lived-experience concepts of choice and consequence which are placed in context with their own lives and their own loved ones. Young passengers and drivers are inspired by LOVE, FAMILY and the EMPOWERMENT of CHOICE to influence great decision-making in everyone around them.
YOU CHOOSE Youth Road Safety’s foundational motto, Own the Choice Own the Outcome is underpinned by powerful messages:
- This generation has the awesome potential to be the first to permanently change driving behaviours
- Reckless driving habits are not part of growing up. Lethal consequences are not bad luck. They are choices. The tired old maxim “We’ve all done it” is simply not good enough – today’s young people are way better than that.
- Everyone is empowered right now to start saving lives by being outspoken about reckless driving habits among their peers – saying nothing is facilitating the status quo.
It’s proven that awareness campaigning, skills education and lectures about right/wrong and safety/danger are not enough on their own. YOU CHOOSE reinforces traditional driver education set-pieces, with a mission to change attitudes and behaviours through youth-led peer-to-peer advocacy.
The YOU CHOOSE program is a 60 minute presentation, followed by 30 minutes of survey and engagement regarding leadership, long-arc student body traditions and school community action plans.
There’s proof of concept in YOU CHOOSE presentations to many tens of thousands of students, that young Australians respond authentically and emotionally to messages about Choice, Outcomes, Love, Family, Empowerment and Social Mission.
Together, we can uplift each other to reduce the misery of youth road trauma with immediate effect.
