The Atlanta-based Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Sandy Springs-based UPS Foundation recently took over Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta by hosting Safe Fest, a fun and educational teen safe driving event that also celebrated 10 years of the partnership’s teen safe driving program: UPS Road Code. In 2009, the two organizations partnered to create UPS Road Code to educate teens at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country on the importance of driver safety – a prevalent topic when you consider motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. UPS Road Code is a combination of classroom instruction and time behind the wheel of a driving simulator, and is taught by UPS drivers, some of the safest on the road.
